Removing Rust Stains from Carpet and Upholstery

Posted on June 3rd, 2011 No Comments

Rust stains are some of the hardest stains to remove, because rust’s chemical structure responds differently to normal cleaning products.

If you have ever tried to clean a rust stain, you may have used laundry detergents or even bleach. Rust, however, is a very interesting substance. It actually reacts quite well to cleaning products. Products like bleach, or cleaning agents that contain it, actually serve to intensify rust stains rather than remove them. Try an unconventional rust remover instead.

Lemon juice and salt are actually two of the best rust removers on planet earth.  Lemon works by loosening the rust stain and making it easier to remove. Simply soaking the stained area in lemon juice before running water on the stain can make its removal exponentially easier.

Salt can be used at the same time as lemon juice. While soaking the rust stain in the juice, pour some salt on the affected area. Together, the two will break down the stain allowing for a very easy removal.

"Wow Total Cleaning is great!"

Rating: 5

Wow Total Cleaning is great! My carpets look brand new again - and they were looking pretty bad! I was shocked when I came home to pristine white carpets. And they still look good. Their prices are great. They were in and out in 30 minutes. My neighbors who have alot of dogs always use them to clean their carpet. I also just realized they have a maids service and intend to give that a try too. They don't call it Wow for nothing, you too could enter your home saying WOW!
