Rust Stains On Vintage Fabric

I have several vintage tablecloth linens, dresser scarves etc that have rust like stains on them. I don't know how to treat them without hurting the material. Any advise? Thanks

Would also like to know. My wedding dress hung on a metal hanger with no air conditioning or climate control for 32 years and the hanger rusted on the shoulders. Help!!

I haven't tried it (cause I can't find it!) but my mother tells me there is a product called Wink that will remove rust. She lives in Mississippi and I'm on the west coast so maybe it's only found over there...I need to try it on some vintage table runners. I did have fairly good results with OxyClean. I soaked it in hot water for a day, rinsed, washed by hand and hung to dry. Most of the stains are gone.
