Small stains can be removed with a few drops of a commercial rust remover,
or by repeated applications of lemon juice and salt on the stain. Do not let
dry between applications.
Rinse thoroughly and launder with a liquid laundry detergent and oxygen
bleach, following directions.
That is for the next time because chlorine bleach, that you used, will set
in the stain permanently.

Rust in fabrics can be a challenge. The products available for rust
removal may damage color fabrics. You could try dissolving 1/4 t.
table salt in 1/8 c. warm lemon juice or vinegar and applying this to
the stain. If this works (and does not damage the fabric or color),
you can use a cup of salt and a gallon of vinegar to an entire wash
load. Perhaps someone can mention a specific product for rust stain
removal in fabrics that works, yet safe.
