Here are some tips to follow to remove rust from your carpet:
Scrape it – When talking about rust, you can lose them with the use of butter knife. Using the knife blade run it from side to side through the discolored carpet area, this will help the carpet fibers to lose the dry particles. You need to vacuum the spot using a vacuum and if required scrape it again using the knife. Vacuum with hose attachment can be perfect to help you keep a close eye on your progress. Using knife and hose and alternating back and forth between the two tools until no more dry rust comes out of the carpet.
Rust Remover – Take a damp white cloth emit a small amount of dish soap on the cloth and press the cloth top on the rust stain. Blot the stained area several times with the cloth and then allow the soap to sit for 5 to 10 minutes. Using a dry white cloth or paper towel, dab the soaped area this will absorb the soap and rust. Do check the cloth or paper towel for rust in the regular interval as you dab it, switch to a fresh area of the material and continue dabbing. Wipe up the soap later with a fresh damp cloth when you finish with dabbing.
Salt and Vinegar Solution – With the help of white vinegar soak a white cloth in it and dab the area. Apply little pressure to wet the carpet fibres. Now sprinkle salt over the moistened carpet and allow the salt and vinegar to sit for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes blot the area with a dry cloth and using a vacuum, vacuum the area to remove the remaining salt. Wipe it again with a damp white cloth after vacuuming the carpet.
Lemon – Lemon juice is very useful when it comes to removing rust as it lightens any remaining rust hence, making it invisible. Pour some lemon juice into a shallow bowl and sprinkle some generous amount of salt. Take a white cloth and dip that into the lemon solution and dab it over the rust stain repeatedly.
