No matter how often we clean our bathroom, rust stains continuously accumulate on its surfaces. Rust stains commonly appear in spaces with frequent water use, such as sinks, toilets, and bathtubs. Rust stains can be annoying to deal with and are an eyesore in your home’s bathroom. Along with its unappealing look, rust stains can also damage the surface of your bathroom fixtures. Listed below are four methods used to remove rust stains from the surface of your bathtub.
Baking Soda and Vinegar
To create a powerful stain remover, mix baking soda and vinegar together. It’s an easy, convenient, safe, and cost-efficient way to remove rust stains from your bathtub.
Lemon and Salt
Besides being great cooking ingredients, lemon and salt are also useful for cleaning. Combining lemon and salt creates a mixture that can remove all kinds of stains, including rust stains. This cleaning method isn’t as harsh as baking soda and vinegar, so baking soda and vinegar are recommended for tougher stains.
