How can I get rust stains from clothing from hanging in a closet?

by Kathyshoun
I have a nice white dress/jacket and a white fleece sweatshirt with decoration on it and they have brownish-looking rust spots on them from hanging in closet for sometime. Will vinegar/baking soda combo or a peroxide solution get them out? Please,I need help?

    Most likely ...test a small spot that will not be obvious just in case.

    I have been a fan of good house keeping for years and one of the writes in the magazine has the best tips for cleaning everything under the sun. I hope this helps she has saved some valuable items I had that I could not replace with her cleaning ideas so I thinks she can handle this one. Hope it helps. Teresa

    Dampen the spot well, place Cream of tarter on it so the powder gets damp. Let it set for a hour( keep tarter damp. ) rub, rinse and wash. It worked for me several times.

    The best rust remover I have ever found is "Wink Rust Remover". It works on rust so quickly that you won't believe it. It doesn't harm the fabric and it doesn't harm plastic. It will etch glass, porcelain and possibly metal. Use this product, watch the spot disappear. old stains may take a little longer. Be sure and have it on a plastic surface, pan or bowl. Let it sit till spot disappears then rinse in cold water. DO NOT GET IT ON OUR FINGERNAILS!!! It will sting! It is almost like magic!
