Removing Bath Tub Stains from Iron Out?

I have well water and am experiencing orange stains in my tub and toilet. I purchased Iron Out and sprinkled it around the tub walls and left it to do its job. When I came back I have gray/black stains all over. How do I remove the stains from the Iron Out?

For the toilet, use Lysol toilet bowl cleaner. Just leave in the toilet for an hour and wash off. In the tub, use Comet to scrub off the stains.

The black staining you get from Iron Out is a reaction the cleaner makes with the iron. I also had that happen. I did two clean cycles with just putting a scoop of Iron out. The second time was a little better. Then I ran a regular load of old never used anymore rags. Old washcloths, a pair of jeans, shirts, sweatshirt, etc. For this load I ran a bulky load-extra rinse, on HOT/HOT. That got rid of my black streaking.

The toilet problem first: Tyrn the water off to the toilet and drain. Next, put in a rubber stopper (I took the handle off my plunger and turned it upside down). Now, take a bucket of HOT water (I mean hot as in faucet turned to high hot, not hot as boiling on the stove hot) don't use warm water or else it won't work. Fill the toilet bowel with the hot water all the way to just touching the bottom of the brim. Then, pour in 1 scoop of Iron out, close the lid, turn on the vent close the door and come back in 45 minutes to an hour. Now use the toilet plunger handle and slowly pop the seal and let the water drain out. Turn the water to the toilet back on and flush, Shiney new toilet bowl!

The shower issue:
Iron Out makes a spray gel that is amazing on the shower! I have found if you spray the shower down or use it right after using the shower works best. With the damp walls, start at the top and spray your way all the way down. I use a rubber glove on one hand and real quickly rub the gel all over to make sure everything is actually coated. Then I wait 15 minutes and come back and started with a wet sponge. With my sponge I start at the top again and work my way down. I do rinse and squeeze out my sponge a couple times during this process but you don't have too. Lastly, rinse.

I use this method on both tile showers, paying extra attention the Grout stains, and fiberglass shower tub combos. I do this about every 4-5 weeks. The in between time I use the spray gel on the toilet bowl as maintenance. Spray, rub, soak, rub, flush. Easy!

I also use the scotch non scratching cleaning sponge. But a magic eraser for maintenance.

Good Luck to you!
