Somehow I got rust stains on my new linen blouse. Anyone know if there's a good way to get them out?

The fabric isn't white, so I doubt if I can bleach it, if that's what you're supposed to do.

Don't try bleach.

Here are the results of a google search for 'remove rust stains from clothing.'

Thanks! Going to try the baking soda & water in a plastic bucket - at least I have the ingredients already.

I printed this list a while back, and keep it in one of those protective sleeves in the laundry area, it's been very helpful at times.... Martha's stain removal tips
