Thanks to Cathy for this Frugal Baby Tip!

Remove rust stains on clothing with salt. Just mix together equal amounts of salt and vinegar and apply it to the stain. Let it sit for 30 minutes, then launder.

Rust stains on clothing can be removed with rhubarb. Use the hot juice from 5-6 stalks.

Use a color-safe bleach rather than chlorine bleach. Chlorine bleach causes iron in water to precipitate out onto fabrics, leaving brown stains. Unless iron can be filtered out with water conditioning, chlorine bleach should not be used.

Using color-safe instead of chlorine bleach can help prevent rust stains on laundry.
