I have used Iron Out for over ten years to remove rust buildup due to well water. Although I have a water softener that removes a lot of rust, it does not remove all of it. My toilets and tubs usually get rust stains that are very hard to remove. Iron Out is easy to use and gets rid of the rust stains. I would recommend this product to anyone who has iron in their well water. Performance This product delivers as promised. At one point my water softener stopped working properly and all of my appliances that use water were covered with rust stains. For my dishwasher, all I had to do was run a cycle using only Iron Out and when the cycle finished and I opened the dishwater door, the entire inside was pure white with no rust stains. I have also used Iron Out to remove rust from my washing machine, sinks, tubs, and still use it for my toilets bowls. It is a must have for anyone with rusty well water. Scent The scent of this is not strong, but it does have a chemical smell. It is not very pleasant, but is tolerable especially when you really want to remove rust stains. The scent dissipates in a few minutes, so scent is not really much of an issue.
Iron out is a great product and works very well to remove iron and rust stains from appliances and clothes. I grew up with well water and we used this product because of that. I mainly prefer to use it to wash laundry, with well water you avoid owning to many white clothes, but you use this on your whites and make them like new again. It also is good for cleaning tubs,sinks,dishwashers to get the stains out. I personally don't use it much for that as I have found a cheaper cleaner that works just as well to clean this types of stains. I mainly buy this product to use on laundry, just let clothes soak with about of cup of this added for thirty minutes and stains are gone. It works very well but the downsides for me are the price, and the smell. This product has a very strong oder and can choke you up if you breathe it in to deep or use to much. Definitely make sure the room is well ventilated if your using this to clean, you can usually just fill sink/tub with water pour this in and let soak to remove stains. I wouldn't advise trying to srcub this in or anything just due to the harsh chemical smell of it. These two reasons are why I prefer to just buy once in a while and use only to was white clothing in, I cant afford to buy it a lot and cant much stand the smell. However it does do it's job very well.
I live in a house with well water and it turns everything orange. I use Iron Out all over the house. I pour a few teaspoons a month in the holding tank of the toilets, I use it to scrub buildup of rust in the toilet bowl, I clean the shower with it, I have used it on laundry, I use it to scrub down the orange stains on the siding from the hose, and so much more. It is the only product I can find to get my dishwasher clean as well. The orange builds up in my dishwasher horribly and I just put Iron out in the soap dispenser and turn the dishwasher on for a cycle and when its complete it looks brand new again.No scrubbing or anything! My only concern with this product are the ingredients and smell. The bottle has many hazardous warnings and does not seem to be good for humans, pets, or the environment. Also the smell is terrible and makes me cough wickedly. I would recommend this product but at the same time caution people when using it. It does do a good job just be careful with this product.
I have always had well water, which is pretty hard on whites. I tried this after my mom recommended it. I've only used it on my laundry. It works, but it takes a little extra work. I have to let it soak for about half an hour. I have a front loader so after about five minutes I stop the cycle, let the iron out soak in, and restart after half an hour. My trouble is remembering to restart the machine. I do have small kids. Since having them I have tried to use more natural products. Iron out is not one of these products. The label has plenty of warnings. Eye irritant, skin irritant and you're not supposed to inhale the vapors. My kids have sensitive skin, so I don't wash my kid's clothes with any iron out. My husband and I don't have any problems with it. I do notice the vapors when I pour it into the machine. It has an odor and I have to say it bothers me. I do my best to toss it in and close the door quick. I have tried other products natural and unnatural. Nothing works quite as well as iron out, so I keep using it despite the warnings.
Iron Out Super Rust Stain Remover works great! It is one of very few products that actually removes iron/rust stains. When I want to clean my bathtub, I simply fill it with water past the stain line, dump in the Iron Out Super Rust Stain Remover, and walk away. When I see the stains are gone, I drain the water and rinse. We actually have a leaky faucet in our bathtub that continuously drips iron/rust water all day and night. When I want to clean this stain, I fill the tub with only about a half inch of water, dump a large amount of Iron Out in, and let it sit overnight. It is truly amazing how great this product works. I used the same cleaning method on my sinks, toilets, toilet tanks, etc. Iron Out can be added to a load of towels to remove rust stains from washcloths, etc. Also, for things like sink mats, I let them sit in an Iron Out bath for a few minutes, and the stains are gone. It is a little expensive, but I guess I figure it's worth the price, since it really works.
In my thirty years of marriage I have lived in four houses that had well water and I could not have made it without iron out. Unfortunately the softener was not working right or my husband wasn't, he has a tendency to forget to buy salt until it's too late. That's when I I notice the color of my sink, toilet, white cloths and dishwasher are changing colors. When that happens I pour a couple of caps full of iron out into the toilet and let the product do the work. With the sinks and tub I close the drain fill with water and walk away. I don't have to wipe or scrub at all. I do shut the doors and sometimes open a window because it has a strong chemical smell that I don't want to breathe. When I see the ugly orange colored stains are gone I rinse the sink and shower and it's done. For my white laundry I pour about a cup into the wash with the water in it and it takes all the stains out of both the clothes and the washer. The dishwasher is just as easy. I put in a half of cup iron out into an empty dishwasher and run it through a cycle when it's done no more stains.
