What can I use to remove iron stained surfaces like acrylic and plastic:tub,
inside of d/washer, etc.? I've tried a number of off the shelf products but
not very successfully. I'm on a well and have and have an inline water
filter before the water softener (which of course doesn't remove iron or
other mineral deposits. My water filter is actually reddish brown stained
and somewhat caked each time I change it. At some point I should install an
iron filter system but can't right now. Thanks for the input.
I used toothpaste to remove iron from around acrylic sink drain; looks
like there is caulk around the drain which is still slightly stained,
but got it off the sink. Mfg. rec. using car wax on the sink.
There are specific products for this. One I recall was, Iron Out, but
don't see it around. Wife had used in previous dishwasher and clothes
washer. Wife uses stuff from Acme just called Toilet Bowl Cleaner.
I'm on a well too but have no water softener, just whole house sediment
When doing appliance repair (years ago) I had customers on wells that iron
stained washers and dish washers. I used Oxalic acid crystals. 2 or 3
tablespoons through a empty load and appliance was spotless. However these
were porcelain finished in those days. Will it work on the newer plastic
type??? I don't know. WW
