Middle summer means hot and dry. The rains of spring are long gone. Our garden needs extra water.
We have one of those hose reels, where you just drag out the amount of hose you need. I pull it out to the garden, attach the sprinkler and let it do its thing. When I'm done, I just reel it back into the housing, not thinking too much about it.
Of course, our hose has a few kinks. The fittings don't quite seal like they used to. Leaks have sprung here and there. Reeling in the hose last night, I noticed that one of these leaks was spraying the side of the house.
We've got hard water, high in iron content. Hard water means rust. Where it sprayed, the leak left a long rust stain on our siding. But how do you remove rust stains from siding?
I came home for lunch today. Before sitting down for a sandwich and some Price Is Right, I thought I might see to that rust stain. It had been on my mind since noticing it last night. Rust stain stress I guess. I had some Super Iron Out
at the house. SIO removes rust from toilets and clothing. Why not siding?
I grabbed an empty bucket, poured in roughly a cup of Super Iron Out powder and added a gallon of warm water. I dipped my brush in the bucket and lightly scrubbed the siding. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine it would be this quick and easy. The rust stain was literally gone in seconds. When I rinsed off the siding, it looked like new. Hard water hadn't won out after all.
Super Iron Out really is the best rust removal product on the market today. It not only removes rust stains from toilets and clothing, but also from siding. And it's so quick and easy, you can literally use it on your lunch break, and still have time for the Price is Right. Still trying to get used to Drew Carey though.
