How to Clean Rust Stains Off Of A Stainless Steel Sink
From: Sarah R.
Hi Tawra and Jill!
First of all, I would like to say that I am a new wife and your tips and money saving tricks have been extremely helpful now that we are trying to make it on are own! So thank you!
My question is… I left an empty can in the sink and now there is a circle of rust. I have tried using baking soda and scrubbing the heck out of it but it didn’t even fade! Any ideas how I can get this rust stain out of my stainless steel sink?
Thanks so much!
Here are a few things to try to remove rust stains from stainless steel:
- Try Comet or Bar Keepers Friend. I had one and it got it out of mine.
- If that doesn’t work Try CLR. Let it sit for a bit then scrub.
- If that doesn’t work then make a paste of lemon juice and salt and let it sit on it over night and then gently rub.
- If that doesn’t work then you can always try sanding it out with 600 grit sandpaper. This worked really well on my porcelain sink that nothing would get it out.
