How can you get rust stain out of colored clothes?

Soak the stain in lemon juice and rub gently until the stain disappears. You may have to rub for a minute or more. It may take up to 30 seconds before you start to see the stain disappear but then all of a sudden, it's gone!


I removed a large rust stain from my carpet this way. I used a spoon to sort of scrape at the spot and afterwards I used ordinary salt to soak up the remaining juice and then I just vacuumed. Stain gone!

(PS) If the clothes are coloured, do a test somewhere inconspicuous first! The lemon juice may fade the colours...
