rust stains on aida

Posted by sudiepav (My Page) on

We moved, and among the (many)treasures I found was a partially completed cross stich. I had put the needle in it, probably intending to come right back to it, but somehow, it got tucked away, and there are 2 rust spots where the needle was inserted! The background is cream, so a bleach pen probably will make matters worse. Any other ideas? Thanks

Is it in a place where you could put a couple of stitches to cover it???

I wash my finished pieces with treasure wash. You can find it at a needle work shop and it works very well. Don't know if it will get the rust out but it couldn't hurt to try it.
