No one likes rust, and even less so when it gets on your clothes. Fortunately, all is not lost if you follow these tips to get rid of rust stains witTide in a few easy steps.
Remove Excess:Brush the excess stain off the surface of the fabric.
Pre-treat:Using a bucket, a sink or a bowl, create a soaking solution by adding 3 tablespoons of baking soda per gallon of cold water. Allow the garment to soak for up to 5 minutes, weighting the item with a white towel to keep it totally submerged.
Dose:You can also use the cap to ensure you use the right amount of Tide HE Turbo Clean Liquid. Just fill it with the correct dose of detergent, and pour it into the detergent dispenser if you have an HE machine, or directly into the drum before loading the clothes if you have a non-HE machine.
Load:Without rinsing off the detergent, place the garment into the washer with other items. Leaving the detergent on the stain will give your wash that extra boost of cleaning power.
Wash:Wash on the usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated. Always check the instructions on the garment’s care label.
Unload:When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
If the stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before tossing in the dryer, as drying will set the stain.
