I have a cotton decorative shower curtain. It has some rust stains at the top from the metal rod hooks. Has anyone had this problem before and know how to get the stains out? Thanks. :icon_wave:

Lemon juice and sea salt should do it!

Whink - but follow the directions on the bottle. Available with cleaning and laundry supplies at your store. Took serious rust out of a pair of corduroy pants . . . but not friendly with my stainless steel sink (that problem was solved though).

There is a product sold in Walmart that will remove rust stain. You just have to squirt it on and then wash as normal. The rust will all be gone! I am sorry that I don't have the name......I am currently out here at home. It comes in a dark brown bottle and I think it might be called Rusto or Rustout or something similar. It really works!

Sandy has the right name! That is exactly what I was thinking about! It does really work! We must have been typing at the same time!

So do you think......if I buy Lindt Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt candy bar........will that help! It would help me.......maybe not the curtain! :lol:

I do wish Joann's wouldn't shelve those Lindt bars right where you have to wait in an interminably slow line to check out. (Our Joann's appears to be hopelessly understaffed.) I'm also partial to the one with caramel in it :).

Claire........maybe that's Joann's sneaky way of making customers cave in and buy the chocolate......they have slow check out lines so your will power will weaken! :D

If that's their strategy, Pam, it's totally working. I can't get out of that place without some Lindt.
