iron Stains

The park we are in has a lot of iron In there water. Any ideas how to clean the stains? Have used iron out, liquid cleanser, Clorox Clean-up, and CLR doesn't seem to get all the stain out. I have the solid surface sink. and what is a grey scotchbrite
Pad. Is it grey? Have looked in stores and can,t find one.

I am surprised CLR did not do the job? Never saw a grey scotch pad, "bartenders friend" coupled with the pad should do it!

IRON OUT dusted on it and then spray KABOOM on it, but don't breath any of it. Let it soak and then rinse it. You can't scrub the iron stain out because it is in the pores.

SnoBowl toilet cleaner is great for removing rust stains, I'd dilute it first

I had some rust stains on the house from the sprinklers. Used a spray on rust remover. I had to let it set for a while. Hour or two. The stains where gone.

The grey scotch brite pad is grey, locally, I can find them at Ace Hardware in the paint department by the sand paper. The ingredient that removes rust in the rust remover products like Iron out is sodium hydrosulfite. You can get a stronger version at Sears in powder form, it dissolves in water to clean the resin bed in water softeners. You could mix it strong and use a spray bottle. They sell two different kinds, the other being citric acid which is useless... This is nasty stuff though, use rubber gloves and don't breathe the fumes, you'll only do it once lol... I repair appliances and we use it to clean the rust stains from the inside of dishwashers and washers, works in minutes...

Snowcap - Well Water Rust Remover

We have plenty of rust here in FL from our shallow well used for irrigation. This is the best product I have ever used and no rinsing involved unless it gets on the glass. Was sold by Ace Hardware but no longer around here. Google will help you find it.

Home Depot and Lowes sells a product called "Rustout" and if it don't remove the rust nuttin will. Rust stains in Florida are the same as death and taxes. Comes in a gallon jug and it works on ANYTHING including clothes
