Spot Removal Tips – Rust

Follow these steps in order to remove the Rust spill:

  • In order to prevent the spill from becoming a permanent stain, Act Quickly.
  • Blot any liquids with a clean white towel.  Scrape any solids with a dull spoon.
  • Do Not scrub the carpet.  This may cause damage to the carpet fibers.
  • Pretest any spot removal agent in an inconspicuous area for color transfer or damage.  If color transfer or damage is present, don’t use that solution.
  • Never use any product which contains bleach.
  • Never use any of the spot removal agents in concentrations stronger than those recommended.
  • When using lacquer thinner, nail polish remover, or a dry cleaning solvent, never apply directly to the carpet.  Apply it to a white towel and then blot it on the spill.  Use caution when using these products, and follow the manufacturer instructions.



  1. Apply lacquer thinner directly to a white towel
  2. Rub spot gently in one direction at a time
  3. Repeat steps 1 & 2 no more than three or four times
  4. Rinse with warm water
  5. Blot dry with white towel
