• 125 ml (1/2 cup) pickling salt
  • 125 ml (1/2 cup) vinegar

  • 1.) Mix salt and vinegar together.
  • 2.) Add just enough water so that the garment is immersed.
  • 3.) Soak rust stained clothing for an hour or more.
  • 4.) Wash as normal.

  • Editor’s Note: This seems to work only if the stain is not set. Do not wash the clothing before soaking as this will set the stain. Vinegar is also ideal for removing deodorant and antiperspirant stains. It also removes cola, wine and ketchup stains.
