I read about using "The Works" toilet bowl cleaner to remove rust from the tub and tried it. OMG..It works for real!!!! I paid $1.79 from Home Depot, squirted it all over (Use Gloves cuz it will burn your skin) took a sponge, wiped it all over and just left it soaking with the drain closed for about 1 hour. I'm so happy!!! From Nashville,Tn.

CLR is a rust/lime remover you can buy in most department and grocery stores.

I like the magic erasers that Mr. Clean puts out. They do a great job!

There is a product called 'Whink', that you can buy at any local hardware store. The best stuff I've ever used & no scrubbing. It just melts the rust away, without harming the finish. You'll wonder what you ever did without it!

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.

Highly recumbent WHINK!!!

I find the very best way is to use a pumice stone

I tried CLR and Lime Away, didn't like results. I have an old tub. Saw recommendation for Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner. Voila! It worked wonderfully. Tub looked great (or as great as it could). Just give it awhile to work; I gave it over two hours just to get the best results possible. Cay from FL

I second the vote for the Magic Eraser. Generic equivalents work as well.
