    What is the best way to remove a rust stain from vinyl siding? Thanks for any help.

    RustAid works very well just spray it on no scrubbing or rinsing. You need to be careful if you get it on some types of brick.

    A solution of Oxalic acid will remove rust stains.
    Power wash the vinyl first with usual house wash (low pressure), rinse/let dry a few minutes and spray the oxalic acid on the stains. They should go out in minutes.

    Yes it us but not everyone has a direct resource to Oxalic acid.
    In fact sometimes I am to far away to my source and need it now.
    Rustaid is at almost any hardware store.
