How to Remove Iron and Rust Stains

Ceramic or Porcelain

Follow these steps to remove iron and rust stains from Ceramic Tile, Porcelain Dishes, or Porcelain Fixtures:

  • On the tub, sink, ceramic tile, or toilet, wet a pumice bar, and rub the iron stain. Caution: Do not use this pumice stick on the ceramic glass found on cookware or ceramic cooktops, as it will scratch the surface.
  • A paste of borax and lemon juice also is effective on iron stains.
  • Rub the paste into the stain and allow it to dry.
  • Rinse with clear water, then repeat if necessary.
  • Dry with a clean cloth.
