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.
