Whenever you do any kind of construction work or other types of projects around your house or on a job site, you’re going to run the risk of staining your clothing with something—be it dirt, oil, grease, tar or rust. Rust spots can be extremely difficult to remove from clothing, and many rust removal products are only designed for hard surfaces.
However, Magica’s rust remover is a highly versatile solution that will work just as well on clothing as it will on concrete or metal—and you won’t have to worry about it doing any damage to your clothing’s fibers! So if you left a rusty nail in your pocket, or spent the day removing old, rusted metal sheets at a job site, you don’t have to worry about those stains sticking with you forever.
Here’s a quick overview of how you can use Magica rust remover to get rust stains out of the fabrics of your clothes.
Removing rust stains from clothes and/or washable fabrics
With any clothes you can throw into the laundry machine, you’ll find using Magica rust remover to be a breeze. You’ll use it in much the same way you would other stain removers or even simple home solutions like lemon juice or vinegar and water.
First, lay out the item of clothing on top of an old towel. Then, pour a small amount of the rust remover directly on top of the stain. Let the solution completely saturate the area, then blot it a bit with a clean white towel. Allow it to sit out a bit—ideally in the sunshine until the stain begins to fade away. Then you can throw it in the laundry as you normally would.
Be sure to check the progress of the stain removal when the laundry cycle completes. If the stain has not yet been removed, you may need to repeat the process with the solution and launder again.
Removing difficult rust stains or stains on non-washable fabrics
There are some circumstances in which the rust stains will be more difficult to remove. This is likely to happen if the stain has had a long time to set in, if the extent of the stain is more significant, or if the fabric itself cannot be thrown into a standard household washing machine.
In this circumstance, you’ll still use the solution as described above. But after letting the area saturate, you’ll need to work the rust remover into the fibers of the fabric a little bit more. You might consider using a light scrub brush for this process, as you don’t want to use your bare hands to work in the solution. You can rinse when done and allow the piece of clothing to sit and dry upon completion.
