I have recently learned that a toilet tank that is full of rust quickly covers the toilet bowl in an orange film. This is a valuable piece of information for me, considering that I feel like I'm always at war with keeping the bowl clean. There is nothing worse than having an orange toilet bowl.
But now I have this knowledge, I need to figure out how to put it to use. The biggest question that came to mind is what product works best in the tank to remove the rust? Off on a hunt for information I went.
The most important criteria a competent rust removal product had to meet was that it wouldn't require me having to drain the tank. What I kept hearing from people I asked is to sue Super Iron Out. All I have to do is to fill the tank as high as possible, pour in half a cup of the rust remover, and let the tank stand overnight.
I followed the directions and poured in the remover before I went to bed. First thing next morning I flushed the toilet and awaited the results. It couldn't have worked any better! The stains were completely gone. No more rust in the tank. Super Iron Out is now a part of my regular cleaning regimen.
I had no idea that there was a large amount of iron in our water supply, until rust got in my washing machine and turned my whites orange. Murphy's Law most certainly struck on this load of wash: what can go wrong, will go wrong. Now I'm stuck with a bunch of grange-stained whites. I couldn't decide if I should throw them out or make an effort to clean them.
My frugality won, so I went and started researching on the Internet for techniques to remove rust stains from clothing. The one product that kept on coming back was Super Iron Out. Plenty of reviews sung its praises and its ability to get every last stain out of white clothes. I figured I had nothing to lose since the clothes were already ruined.
Before heading to the store I checked the Super Iron Out website, lo and behold they even had a printable coupon! After I picked up a bottle, I proceeded to wage war on the rust stains. I read through the instructions to make sure I was using it correctly. Then I took a deep breath and started up the washing machine.
About thirty minutes later, I came back to the machine to see how well the product worked. It was amazing, my whites were white again! It did not damage to the clothing whatsoever, and most importantly, no ugly orange stains. My clothes were saved and my budget was preserved, thanks to Super Iron Out.
Iron rust stains have been a problem with laundry since man began wearing coverings of woven fabric. That is, there were problems after man decided he wanted to wear clean garments, rather than old, dirty, and greasy garments.
The most common rust stains are the spots that appear when the man of the house has been busy in the garage, working on the car, or lawn tools all day. Men are rust stain magnets. It seems like no matter what they're doing in the garage rust stains are attracted to them, at least with my husband.
