    There is a product in the laundry section of the grocer's that will do it. I can't remember the name, but I think it's iron-out. Comes in a box about 6" tall, box is white with red writing. Wife used to use it all the time. I'll check with her in the morning for the product name.

    Oxalic acid will do the job. Look for WOW in the store laundry section. Neal

    Rustaid is sold in local hardware stores here. It is oxalic acid. Works on clothes, fiberglass tanks and our white trucks. We use it on concrete as well, but be careful on pavers. If they are colored with iron oxide it will fade them. We know, from experience.
