At a.c.moore by the counter...grandmas spot remover. Works great
Here is where rust happens too: I have always stuck a pin (usually a 'T' pin) in the opening to my glue bottles, even after closing them. This way the glue doesn't harden in the tips. Well, I use the bottle caps with long tips from empty hair coloring bottles bought at a beauty supply store. The caps fit perfectly on the Elmer's School Glue bottles. Yesterday, not thinking, I grabbed a Clover 'flower head' pin and placed it in the spout to store the glue after using it. Pulled out the pin today and it was rusted, along with the glue that was still in the spout. Squeezed that rusty glue out and found myself a 'T' pin and put it in the opening. I have never had a problem with rusting from the 'T' pins in glue bottles. I checked my pin cushions and the flower head pins all looked fine.
Thanks to all of you, I knew you would all come to my rescue, I can always count on the Quilting Board to come thru. I will try the suggestions and let you know how they work out.what would we do without each other? thanks again
Try hydrogen peroxide. It does NOT bleach anything, and medical personnel use it to get out blood. It just may do the trick.
By the way, peroxide also takes out smells. My cat peed on a brand new sofa and chair when we were gone for a week. I tried all the normal remedies, like Nature's Miracle, and it would remove the smell for a few days, then would be back even worse! So I saturated the areas with a 50/50 mixture of water and peroxide, and let it dry thoroughly. It's been 2 months and not a hint of urine!
I have a bottle of Whink that I have had for at least 40 years. One drop and the rust is gone. You can watch it disappear. Then rinse the spot with plain water.
I'm sure glad I checked this thread!! I'll be getting some Whink Rust Stain Remover!!!

As I have said before, we all learn something from here. Thanks for all the tips.
