Tricks for getting rust stain off laminate counter top?

Metal cookie sheets were left on a wet spot on the counter top, so now there are rust stains on the laminate. Anyone have a tip for cleaning it off?

There is a strange orange place on my flooring that appeared mysteriously, and doesn't come off with regular floor cleaners.
I am going to try those suggestions.

I have used a product called Magic Eraser all you do is wet the M E and rub the spot off. I have used it on red kool-aid, rust and others things. Just keep it out of reach of little hands and , fuzzy paws. Their was a picture on the internet somewhere where a child had chemical burns all over their body. You can get it at walmart.

I had white laminate countertops up until a couple of months ago and they were always getting rust stains on them. I just used 409. Sometimes it would take a couple of cleanings and the help of the green scrubby side of a sponge, but the stains always came up. I was so happy to get darker countertops!

My hubby's thermos leaves rust rings sometimes...I just use Comet and scrub lightly... I guess it would depend on what kind of counters you had....

Cut a lemon in half, put baking soda either on the stain or on the lemon and then rub away!

Cheap too.

Bleach, and a couple products called Ironout, and CLR should do the trick.

I have tried this procedure: First, scrub the area with a rubbing pad, then mix two parts salt with one part lime juice, then apply the paste into the rusted area and leave for about three hours then rinse with water. If your counter easily gets stain, maybe the sealer is getting weak. It is best to ask your fabricator for the right brand to use because some might contain harsh chemicals that might damage the sealer of the counter.
