Came across your comment from searching how to get rid of rust on fiberglass! I went to Ace hardware they had it I used it and it really did work. It was effortless! I used comet and clorox bathroom cleaner first and scrubbed for 35 minutes with no luck.

I tried 'nana6x's suggestion. It worked awesome! 'The Works' is at dollar tree and worked like a charm.

I was surprised at how well The Works works. Rust on my fiberglass tub just kinda disolved away after 10 minutes. I was also surprised at how useless CLR and bakingsoda/vinegar were. Just beware The Works smells strongly of rotten eggs buts it's worth it.

I too use The works it does good on my toilet., but the tub is harder. It turns the real dark rust to a orange. I had to use pumice stone as the scrubber. I am disabled and have to pay someone to do it.

Plastic bottles of Clorox that were left in a porcelain tub for a long period left rust stains in the tub. Why?

Most likely the bleach caused the stains. Many times when the product, in this case bleach, is poured from the bottle there is a residue of bleach that will run down the outside of the bottle and collect on the bottom of the bottle. If the bottle is not wiped carefully the bleach will settle under the bottle and cause staining when placed on a surface.

Saturate the stains with hydrogen peroxide. Leave it on the stains, until the stains disappear, then rinse well with plain water.

Chlorine, the active chemical in bleach, is an oxidizer. Rust is oxidation. Chlorine causes rust to appear much faster than mere water based moisture.

This came up just a few days ago. I recommended Bar Keeper's Friend:

Blue canned oven cleaner on fiberglass works amazing. Spray on, let sit for minimum of an hour and go from there. Some require scrubbing off, others I've only had to rinse off

Answers:

Rust Stains in the Bathtub

If this is a metal or cast iron tub, Bar Keeper's Friend (found near the Ajax, about $2) works well. (01/07/2010)

I have used a product called Whink. It works on just about anything but is pretty toxic. Can be found in most grocery stores. (01/08/2010)

I have rust stains on an old fiberglass tub. What type of vinegar do I use to remove the stains? Apple cider or white vinegar?

By Linda145 from AR

Answers:

Rust Stains in the Bathtub

Not sure about vinegar, either one shouldn't hurt to try. If that doesn't work try a product called
"Iron Out" you can find it at stores like Lowe's or Home Depot. Good luck. (10/29/2009)

Rust Stains in the Bathtub

I am thoroughly amazed at how well The Works did on my tub. My husband just squirted some on a sponge and wiped the rust in one swipe. it created a very clean stripe down the wall. We have been scrubbing and scrubbing at this tub, trying to get the rust stains off the wall and tub itself. We tried Lime Away, CLR, and Kaboom. None of them worked, and you were worn out just trying. Thank you for the suggestion of The Works. I'm so glad I found this site. (10/31/2009)
