Hello. I am looking for a stain remover to remove iron stains from ceramic wall tiles. When I google, I get a range of products to remove stains from [smoothing] irons but it is the red/orange iron stain that I want to remove. In the USA, there is a product called "Iron Out"  that is not available in the UK. Has anyone, pleased, used an iron stain remover?

    It would probably be called rust remover in this country.  Strong vinegar or citric acid are the home remedies and can work well.

    That is helpful. Thank you. I can see that Hammerite has a Rust Remover Gel. I will search around. Ceramic tiles are on a wall, i.e. vertical, so a gel could be ideal.

    Thank you. I think that this may do the trick and I have ordered.
    I had a bathroom fitted about three years ago with "grab bars" in the shower. The fitter took some care to purchase stainless steel screws. Somehow there is rusting and the rust has discoloured the tiles. I will need to remove the grab bars which are presumably chrome plated to examine which component has rusted. I may need to replace with the suction type grab bars.

    Thank you again. That product turns irons stains to a light purple colour upon contact. It did the trick. It has a peculiar smell, almost like photographic chemicals. Anyway, it will be useful to keep at hand.
