    Cut a lemon into quarters and scrub directly on the rust stain... works like a charm!

    As the owner of an environmental housekeeping company I deal with this every day and the best, least toxic, and easiest solution to rust, hard water stains, etc on porcelain bathroom fixtures as well as the chrome fixtures is Barkeepers Friend. It has never failed to remove any stain we’ve ever used it on, we’ve even used it on glass shower doors to remove soap scum and hard water stains. It’s inexpensive, can be found in grocery stores and hardware stores everywhere and you’ll probably become addicted to it because it’s such a great product
