How to remove rusty stains from bathroom surfaces?

Home steps to remove rust stains from bathroom surfaces

Baking soda and citrus fruits: half of the lemon fruit is dipped in baking soda powder, and used to rub the rust-stained area, noting that the citric acid available in lemons (or grapefruit) is effective. For a heavily stained area, it is correct to combine lemon juice with baking soda powder for the purpose of making a paste to paint the rusty area, while covering the paste with a plastic wrap to keep it wet and leave it for at least an hour, to help break up the rust particles.

White Vinegar: The acetic acid in white vinegar is effective in removing rust stains. Use vinegar, on a weekly basis, to clean the bathroom, to help prevent rust stains from becoming permanent. After pouring vinegar on the surface, a brush is used to clean the area, then rinsed well. A rusty toilet bowl, in turn, requires adding a cup (or two) of vinegar, scrubbing with a toilet brush, waiting at least two hours (or overnight), before scrubbing well and rinsing with fresh water.

On the other hand, gentle abrasives, such as baking soda or table salt, can be used alone to prevent damage to porcelain, fiberglass or enamel finishes of bathroom fixtures. In this context, the stained surface is wetted with water, while using the abrasive.
