    Have you tried soaking in borax and water? Peroxide might help too, but I don't know how fragile the material is

  • I have heard that Fels Naptha is good for that problem.

    I'd visit Ace Hardware's cleaning department for a product called rust out or rid out. I'm sure the employees can direct you to the exact product. Best of luck.

    Hello Martha; I use Salt and Lemon juice, as I am normally dealing with Antiques.
    I place the salt and lemon juice in spots.
    Please be careful using some things, as I had a terrible issue once. I ruined several old Antique pieces, when I used a commercial cleaner.
    I hope that this helps you!! Take Care!

    while I love Fels Naptha soap it won't take out rust stains. There is a product for that and it comes in a brown smallish plastic container. Ask at a hardware store. Just put it on the rust, wash it dissolve and rinse immediately.
