How to Remove Rust Stains From a Fiberglass Boat

by Russell Wood

Rust is difficult to remove on a metal surface, but when it stains a fiberglass surface -- like a boat's -- fixing the problem requires another solution. Fortunately, cleaners can fix the problem, and with a little bit of elbow grease, the rust can be scrubbed away.

1

Put on the rubber gloves. This will help protect your skin from any of the chemicals you're about to use.

2

Apply the calcium, lime and rust remover to the rusted area and allow it to work for about a minute.

3

Wipe off the calcium, lime and rust remover using the sponge. This should remove all of the rust, but if not, proceed to the next step.

4

Apply the calcium, lime and rust remover to the rusted area and allow it to work for about a minute. Scrub the rust using the scuffing pad side of the sponge.

5

Wipe the cleaner away from the surface using the sponge.

6

Place the water in the bucket. Then wash away the cleaner on the fiberglass using the water and the sponge.
