Whatever solution you use, Pour it on a towel and let it sit for about 4 hours. Then try to clean it.

On/Off works fast. DO NOT get it on Galvanized surfaces etc, it will take off the coating. Put on old towel, lay on surface for about 5 mins and rinse with clean towels. Towels will be rags after getting that stuff on them. Do not get on your skin and wear safety glasses.

I was too quick to discount the power of Muriatic Acid........I did what most here recommended, laid a soaked towel of MA over rust stains, in several hours all rust stains were gone!
