There’s nothing better than a nice, crisp white shirt. On the other hand, there’s nothing worse than an orange-colored rust stain to ruin that crisp white shirt. Whites are meant to be bright and clean and it’s frustrating when after washing my whites they come out of the washer looking worse for the wear.
I recently noticed that all of my white t-shirts, the ones I like to layer under all of my other tops, were starting to discolor. The discoloring wasn’t from wear or age — the discoloring was from rust that happened in the washing machine. I was really frustrated with the rust stains, and also worried about having to replace all of my white shirts, so I turned to the Internet to research how to remove rust stains.
During my research about removing rust stains from clothing, I came across a product called Super Iron Out. Turns out, it is the #1 rust remover and has been since the 1950s. I was out of options so I decided to give this product a try. I took my stained clothing and soaked them in a water and Super Iron Out mixture for about two hours before I washed. I simply took ½ cup of the cleaner and about a ½ gallon of water and soaked the shirts I was worried about. Then, I washed the shirts on a normal wash cycle. After washing and drying, I can truly say my white shirts are white again. In fact, my whites look almost brand new!
If you live in an area with hard water and are experiencing a problem with rust stains on your white clothing, give Super Iron Out a try. You just may save your white shirts — and your sanity.
