There are effective tile cleaners in every kitchen

Due to the high humidity in the bathroom, objects in this room corrode and rust faster. This can happen not only to metal parts but also to tiles, which can collect rust, for example, from water. How to remove rust in the bathroom? In fact, it can be done with improvised means.

OBOZREVATEL tells you how to clean tiles and metal in the bathroom from traces of rust.

Tiles

First of all, you need to focus on the material from which the tile is made. If it is a textured material such as concrete, cement, or some types of porcelain stoneware, an acidic agent will do. For example, you can squeeze lemon juice and pour it on the stain, or make a poultice out of a paper napkin soaked in juice. Leave the product on for a few minutes, then wipe the treated area with a soft brush to remove dissolved dirt from pores and crevices, and rinse with water. You can clean tiles with vinegar in the same way.

Ceramic tiles with a glossy finish require a more delicate approach to avoid damaging their surface. A mixture of baking soda and vinegar is suitable for this purpose. Sprinkle a little baking soda on the stain and spray 6% vinegar on it. Allow the product to work and use the stiff side of the sponge to scrub off any remaining dirt. You can also use citric acid dissolved in water and salt. Apply the solution to the rust stain and leave it to act for 10-15 minutes. Then the rust can be removed with ordinary table salt. It is better to take fine salt and rub it on the surface in a circular motion.

Metal

Metal surfaces in the bathroom can be easily cleaned with ordinary aluminum foil. Tear off a piece of the material, crumple it into a ball that is comfortable to hold in your hand, and rub it on the area with traces of rust. They should come off easily.

You can also use baking soda as a soft abrasive by mixing it with water to a paste. This paste should be left to act on the stain for 30 minutes. Then rub the stained area with the hard side of the sponge.
