There is no better product than Wink rust remover. It makes the rust disappear right before your eyes. I use it all the time and recommend it highly!

Wear gloves when your work on this products because they contain acid. You can also clean discolored porcelain fixtures with a paste made of cream of tartar moistened with hydrogen peroxide with lemon juice.Squeeze the juice of half a lemon onto the salt. Apply the mixture onto the rust on the shower with the sponge. Press the mixture against the rust spot and leave it there for a few minutes.

Most bathroom cleaners, as youíve discovered, arenít effective against rust. Bleach actually makes rust harder to remove. Given everything youíve already done, thereís no telling whether you have already set the stain or damaged the surface. But in the hope that youíre still just dealing with a basic rust stain, here are two products you can try: Super Iron Out Rust Stain Remover

If y'all walked in to any of my customer's house with all these chemicals they would send you packin
What is "screen"? A cleaner? Or are you talking about a regular screen like the one in my screen door?

When I first got into this business, I used The Works. And didnt find it to be helpful, plus it smells awful and it can't be a good thing to breathe those fumes in and certainly not get into your eyes or on your skin! I stopped using it quickly, especially after one customer complained to me about the smell. Never used it again after that.

I like the idea of using a piece of screen. I may try that. I also live in Florida, and rust is common. Especially in older mobile homes.

Hello friends,
All your tips are quite helpful. Due to high iron content, rust and other stains can happen. A pumice scouring stick works well for removing stains. If rust still remains, then it is time to move to a more powerful rust stain remover. Be sure to use the right rust removal technique for the type of surface as linoleum, chrome, ceramic, and porcelain surfaces should be treated in different ways.

You can find The Works at Dollar Tree stores. Also try using BarKeepers Friend. It works great on rust, toilet rings and glass shower doors!

Good question! I would like to inform you that you can easily remove the rust by various methods but the challenge is to stop future rusting! To prevent future rust, you must treat the surface with rust inhibitor!
