Stains On Stucco

I need to remove some stains on stucco. These two stains, about two feet in diameter, are at ground level. They appear to be light rust stains. Can you guys recommend a cleaner? The home owner said he has tried muratic acid and TSP? Thanks Robert

Re: Stains On Stucco

We have use oxalic Acid to remove rust many of times. You may have to do the whole thing to make it even out. Don't want a bright spot with no rust. Oxalic is also known as wood bleach. Use safety precautions when using this one also. It gets in your skin and destroys the mans child making parts.

Re: Stains On Stucco

Oxalic is extremely toxic, and is dangerous not only to the user, but also to the environment. Try to avoid it if possible. Saferestore from EaCo Chem works very well at removing rust stains.
