Applied this using a cheap spray bottle to a badly stained white vinyl fence and it effortlessly took the orange right off. Rinsed it with water after. It looks like a new fence. Also applied it to a stained cement step, same beautiful result. I’m shocked it was that easy!

Quickly cleaned concrete swales
Our neighbors irrigation system caused unsightly stains in our concrete swales. This product removed the stains quickly and effortlessly. I’m talking within 20 minutes. Last week, our HOA had a power washing company clean all the concrete but their chemical didn’t remove the rust. Goof Off saved the day, and the cost was a fraction of hiring a professional.

    Awesome Product
    This product works wonders for removing clay stains that seem impossible. I used it on my white brick house and my concrete patio.

      Removed iron stain from siding
      This stuff it remarkable, I just sprayed the surface down every 5 minutes, and then again & again till stains were gone. Once the stains were all gone I then hosed everything down with the water hose.

        BEST EVER
        I just put in a white vinyl fence. The irrigation pipes gave it rust stains everywhere. I tried everything “natural”. Nothing worked. I found this product. It took the stains out in front of my eyes!! Also used it on the pavers where irrigation pipes stained as well. GONE. I love this stuff!!

          Rust is gone!
          Rust literally melts in front of my eyes within minutes of spraying it. Does not affect the railing but dissolves the rust on the stucco. Previously tried power washing and painting over it and didn't work.

            Ruined my concrete patio. Do not buy this item!
            Brought this product to remove rust that was left on my concrete patio. It did NOT remove the rust stain but instead left me with a disgusting ring stain outline. I have tried everything and I am exhausted. I was able to get a pressure washing company to come. They were able to remove the rust stain but the ring stain would not bulge. It is such an eye sore, I truly regret purchasing this item. It ruined my 1 yr old concrete patio.

              Awesome product
              This stuff is awesome. Sprinkler water causes rust on my vinyl fence and side walk. Spray this stuff on and within seconds the rust stains starts coming off.

                REMOVED RUST FROM SIDING !
                No scrubbing! you spray and literally watch it melt away. I did use a grout sponge to wipe the area clean between sprays and to catch the run off product from getting on the glass doors because product said it will itch glass if not cleaned immediately, as well periodically hosed down the glass with water. The rusting has been on there for years from previous owner. I’ve tried multiple cleaners and NOTHING worked

                  Doesn't work
                  Two applications, full strength with a garden sprayer. Waited for stains to disappear; only the lightest surface stains did. Returned the last container. Doesn't remove dark, shallow well sprinkler rust stains.

                    Unbelievable
                    Had a air conditioner leak rust into bathtub along all surfaces with the exception of near wall. Tried several products with lots of elbow grease results were poor to say the least. Bought goof off read the simple instructions presto like magic the rust strains were magically disappearing. I know your probably thinking that the other products assisted in the removal. However, it worked just as good on areas which were not worked on before this product was applied. Mostly one application.

                      WOW!! This is incredible.
                      What can I say but WOW!!! Sidewalk has been orange since moving in almost 2 years ago. I irritated me and power washer couldn't get this out. Sprayed on and never even rinsed it off for power washing it soon. Pics speak for themselves.

                        Wow
                        Amazed at how fast it works. We have about 300 feet of sidewalk in front of our house, applied about 8 gallons to do whole sidewalk and gutter along the street. Just spray on and let it sit about 5-10 minutes, then hit it with the pressure washer. Even looked good before hitting it with the pressure washer. Still a little staining left. Will try another application later. But even the pressure washing companies we have hired in past couldn’t get any cleaner than this.

                          This product worked perfectly on our white brick. This is after one use, letting it sit for 15-20 minutes before rinsing. Be sure to use proper PPE when using.

                            Works as it should. Take away the rust spots immediately from any surface.

                            All gone with Goof off RustAid OUTDOOR
                            Currently, we have a water well attached to our home and a yard with an irrigation system layout. This well water is full of RUST WATER. We keep the well inside a water shade and had a water pipe burst. We soon found "Goof OFF" as it had worked well in the past at removing the glue. The Price was right and this RUSTAID "Outdoor" performed much better than I had expected. At 4:00 PM I filled a Spray bottle and began spaying the outside door, walls (SEE PHOTOS ATTACHED) where the rust was most noticeable. The next morning about 9:00 AM after applying the first coat and was truly blown away by what the product had done. I would say in the attached photos you can clearly see the dark black rust had been removed by 90% "NO JOKE" I was so taken I went around my home spaying rust stains and the rust was removed in a matter of seconds (This was years of rust built up on the side of the house and did not hard the house paint. If you want RUST GONE, you have to use this Goof OFF RUSTAID "Outdoor". My suggestion is to use a spray bottle to apply and a light facemask as there is a bit of an odor. But tolerable.

                              This did what the pressure washers couldn't
                              I have stains on the house from the sprinkler's using the well water. No one could get off. I was told to repaint the house and use city water for the lawn. This instantly removed the stains!

                                    It certainly worked like magic. Unlike what the bottle states, it will completely destroy your plants and grass. In one shot, Poof it’s gone

                                      Can’t say enough good things. Spray on, wait 10 minutes or so, spray off. I used the “jet” setting on my hose. No scrubbing at all. It was all that brown. Highly recommend.

                                      Our sprinkler system draws from well water so our exterior walls were starting to show some rust stains. I ordered this product based on reviews and using a scrub brush (meant for indoor mopping) was able to remove all rust stains with ease.

                                      We rent a town home. Above our porch, our air conditioning was leaking right onto our porch and ourside paneling for years. I’ve tried everything to get this nasty stain out and nothing worked until Goof Off Rust Aid. I really am in shock at how well this worked, took 4-5 sprays with 8 minutes between each spray and now it looks brand new!

                                        This stuff is great. My pool has been getting hit by the sprinklers for three years. I just sprayed this on and watched the rust disappear. No scrubbing, no pressure was. Just spray and let it do its magic. Now it's time to adjust the sprinkler spray pattern.

                                          Picked this up a few days ago without doing any research on it. I have some pretty terrible rust stains on my patio from the previous homeowners' old furniture. I'd tried pressure washing it out with no luck so I knew I needed something more. I wasn't expecting a miracle considering this was less than 10 bucks but threw it in a sprayer anyway and tested a small area and was shocked when it cleared the rust almost instantly. I've since done my entire patio and am so impressed with the results! Very little work required, just spray the affected areas and then once it's done it's job, rinse it off and you're done!

                                            Bought to clean my white vinyl fence
                                            I bought the Goof Off Rust and Stain remover to clean my white vinyl fence after watch several videos of peope using it to clean their white vinyl fences. This producr worked very well in those videos but didnt work so well on my fence. The product did work just not well enough to jeep me from using my pressure washer on every inch of my fence. I’m not knocking this product because my fence may have been just too far gone for a grass friendly product, meaning I may need a stronger product. I did use a product that wasn’t grass or plant friendly and it worked like a champ. However, I will try this on the siding on my home.

                                            JoeD,

                                            We apologize that the Goof Off Rust Aid Outdoor Stain Remover did not remove the rust stains from your vinyl fence. Unfortunately, not knowing exactly what type of rust stains are on the vinyl fence, our product is specially formulated to react with oxidized iron to neutralize and remove tough well water rust stains from most outdoor surfaces. However, iron stains from fertilizers are very hard to remove. This product will remove the rust, but it may take several applications. If you have more questions, please contact our Goof Off helpline at 877-466-3633.
