Is there a way to get rust stains off of a countertop?

It's notlike granite or marble or anything... just that regular, smooth kind like vinyl or whatever.

  • Have you tried a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser? They seem to do the best job.. otherwise the only thing I might try is comet.

  • Slice and onion in half and try rubbing the inside of the onion over the spot. The enzymes in the onion can remove rust off of metal, perhaps they'll remove rust off of the countertop too?
