Removing rust stains
To start with, brush the excess rust off with a toothbrush or other soft bristled brush.
Dilute the rust
Dilute the rust stain by rinsing it under running cold water. The higher the water pressure, the easier it will be to remove any excess stain.
In a plastic bucket, create a soaking solution with 3 tablespoons of baking soda and cold water, and let the garment soak for up to 30 minutes.
Preparing for wash
Gently wring out the excess water before adding it to your wash with similar items.
Add detergent based on the instructions on your pack.
Load your garment into the washing machine with other, similar items and wash on your usual cycle, at the highest temperature shown on the care label.
After the wash cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
