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.
Rust stains don’t have to mean the end of your clothes. Instead of throwing out the rust stained clothing and getting new shirts, which can really add up, try adding Super Iron Out to the load. Simply, add 1/2 cup to warm water while your washer is filling. Add your clothes and let them soak for about 5 minutes, it works best if you can stop the machine. Then add your detergent and let the wash cycle finish. And presto! When you pull your clothes out of the wash the rust stains have disappeared. It's that easy.
