Cleaning rust stains off your patio can be a challenge, but if you follow these steps, it is the easiest and most effective way to get rid of those rust rings that seem to occur more often than not.

1. Lemon Juice

One of the most effective ways to remove rust stains from a concrete or brick patio is lemon juice. There are two ways that you can do this:

  • You can slice a lemon and rub the juice over the rust stain, then sprinkle it with salt and let it sit for about an hour before scrubbing away with a brush or towel. This will loosen up the rust and make scrubbing easy.
  • Another simple way to remove rust stains from concrete or brick is with half a lemon and aluminum foil. Squeeze the juice over the stain and then lay a piece of aluminum foil on it. Apply heat from either a hairdryer or the sun and let it sit for about 15 minutes before removing it and scrubbing away with a brush or towel.

2. Baking Soda and Detergent

You can add baking soda to a bucket of warm water, then scrub the rust stains with a brush or towel to remove them from patios and other surfaces. If you want to add some extra power to your cleaning solution, mix in a bit of dish detergent when you’re adding the baking soda and water.
