Rust stains on vinyl siding-help!

juleecatAugust 4, 2014

I left the sprinkler on near the house-first time in 12 yrs that we have lived here. We have terrible water, and now I have rust stains on the pale yellow vinyl siding. I tried the pressure washer with detergent, windex and a scrub brush, and 1/2 strength and full strength CLR. nothing is working! Please help! :)

I would call the siding company, any siding company and ask them what they recommend. Good luck.

My favorite go-to is Bar Keeper's Friend. It's kind of like comet or ajax, but not as abrasive and it works on vinyl. I use it on my fiberglass kitchen sink with excellent results. I would try it on a small spot first. If it doesn't work just with a bit of elbow grease, make a paste and let it sit on it for awhile. Definitely try it on a small spot first. I've never used it on vinyl siding. I hope this helps.
