Worse, if it is on wool or silk. Its removal is not easy. If the stain is fresh, you can soak it with lemon juice or with a 10% solution of citric acid. The treatment should be repeated several times and then you can rinse the stain with water. Older rust stains are difficult to remove. Pour a hot, 5% oxalic acid solution on them and rinse them with warm water with the addition of ammonia. Repeat this several times until the stain disappears. After the treatment, wash the material.
