    Me too. I've never had any rust, but want to be prepared, just in case.

    Whink Rust Remover is great for some things but not all. It removed the rust on my chenille robe but also removed the color! Be wary. If all else fails, maybe applying just a dab of Whink with a Q-tip on just the white, solid pieces if there are any. I would try everything else first and this idea only out of desperation. Good luck.

    Whink is good. I have used it on clothing to sinks. I don't know how it would do on old fabric though.

    I am wondering if the rust may be caused, by the high humidities that we had this past summer. While working on a quilt,
    you may want to spread it out, when you put it away in the evenings to work on it the next day. I know that here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, things, this past summer, often felt damp, even with the a/c on. Maybe fresh circulating air is the answer. I am so sorry that you have this problem and am hoping that you can restore it.

    I hope you can get the rust marks off of your quilt.

    This is great information. I live near the beach and I am a new quilter. I didn't even think about my safety pins. I bought ones marked quilting, but they are silver. I am going to be sure not to pin until I am ready to quilt. Thank you.

    Retro Clean quilt soak worked for me. It took out rust and who knows what else from an antique quilt my Greatgrandma did and I restored. Wonderful product and I will use it again.

    Here in Australia we have a product called Rustiban. It takes the rust marks right out and as far as being safe for fabric I used it on a wedding dress.
