Help!


How can I remove rust stains from a white aluminum fence?
Or....should I just paint over the stained area? and if so, with what? aerosol spray paint?
Thanks to all who read this and many more thanks to those with the right tip!
Hopeful.

Ayuh,....

You could try something like CLR,.....

Painting will require Sanding,+ Priming for a good finish.....

Just how the paint is applied is up to you,.....
Brushed, rolled, or sprayed is fine,....
Although using Rattlecans probably will give the Worse possible results.....

If these rust stains are from contact with steel hardware, I would relace all of the fasteners with stainless or you'll have this problem again in a few years.

Good info above... if stains are light you could try vinegar and hot water..wipe with a good clean rag.
