How to remove rust stains from kitchen sink?

  • 5

My husband placed two cookie racks in the sink one night. When I moved the racks the following day to wash them, I found that the racks had transferred orange rust marks onto our stainless steel sink. I didn't even know that the racks were rusting! Is there any way to remove the marks? Thanks in advance for your tips.

        Thanks very much, jzerocsk and cpt wafer!

      2. Bon Ami cleanser did the trick for me.

        1. If none of the prior suggestions work (on such a new, smallish area, they probably will), for tougher rust stains, you can get naval jelly from the hardware store and scrub with 0000 steel wool.
