How to Remove Rust Stains from Carpet

If you have this exact problem, don’t worry! We have a handy guide on how to remove rust stains from carpet.

If you do not have access to a professional rust removing chemical cleaner then a combination of lemon juice and salt has been shown to work well to combat rust stains.

Soak the rust stain with a mixture of salt and fresh lemon juice and leave it to soak overnight. After enough time has passed, apply a combination of warm water and washing detergent to the problem area with a clean cloth or absorbent rag such as white towelling rags. Blot the surface with the solution and rinse with clean water until the stain has been removed.

It is also worth noting that bleach and rust do not mix. So even if your carpet is designed to withstand bleach cleaning you will need to avoid using it to combat rust as it will intensify the stain and potential discolouration.
