How to Get Rid of Rust Stains from Bathroom Sinks, Toilets, and Tubs

No one likes to see a stain on their toilets, tubs or bathroom sinks. We know that this can be hard for you as even the cleanest toilets look ugly with those red stains. These are mostly caused by the hard water causing the minerals to react, which would then cause those ugly red, rust stains. Throughout this article, we will go over some of the ways that we have gathered from our professional plumbers of Mr. Rooter Plumbing so that you can get rid of those red stains as early as possible.

Red Stains in Bathrooms

If your stains are light, without using any strong chemicals to scratch the surface, use a scouring pad and some elbow grease to remove the stains. However, if your stains are strong, then it may be time to use some chemicals. There is not much to explain with chemicals except for the potential harm they can do to you. We don't want you to cause any harm to your health, for this reason, Mr. Rooter Plumbing offers a plumbing repair service that safely returns the red stains in your bathroom back to their original color in the safest way possible.

Rust from the Bathroom Fixtures

Many of our bathroom fixtures also end up getting rusty which may cause a very unpleasant look. So, here are some accessible tips that we have gathered for you:

  • Baking Soda is a great way to prevent rust buildup. Simply mix your baking soda with water and form a paste. Use that paste on the stain and let it sit there for at least half an hour. Later, gently scrub the paste to see that the baking soda might have broken the rust buildup. The same works with a paste with lemon juice and salt.
  • Vinegar is just like baking soda, simply spray vinegar on a stain and let it break the rust buildup. After, gently scrub the vinegar and get a brand new-looking bathroom fixture.
Rust Stains in Toilets and Bathrooms

To prevent the stains in toilets and bathrooms, here are two things we have gathered for you:

  • Get a Water Softener - If you are looking to get long-term comfort, this is the perfect option for you. Again, the rusts are caused by the mineral reaction from hard water, but with a water softener, the chances of rust ever forming again are very low. For this reason, although it may seem like a costly option to you, people who are considering long-term comfort should consider this a must.
  • Clean the Rusty Place More Often - Although this is physically harder than obtaining a water softener, rather than putting up with the cost of that, you can clean it at least once a month to prevent any possible rust buildups. To prevent any of those buildups in toilets and sinks, you must clean them weekly.
