removing rust stains from porcelain tub


I have a porcelain tub that has rust stains - some of them caused by the bottom of cans of shaving cream. Attached are 2 pics of the problem.
I tied Whink 01281 Rust Stain Remover which is highly rated on Amazon - without any luck. Looking for some other advice. Thanks

You can try using vim which is a mild abrasive. Rub it on in a circular direction with a damp cloth.
