what is the surface made of? Barkeeper's friend works on rust in my white porcelain sink (cast iron will leave a mark if it sits at all in there). Can't use it on everything though.

Depends on what is causing them, too........

If you are talking about real metal that is rusting out, you'll eventually need to replace the shower. And figure out what cause the rust to occur to prevent it from happening again.

If your talking about orange water stains, then baking soda works for me.

The cause is my shave gel container - the bottom is metal and it stays in the shower. I will give baking soda a try and see if that helps. Thanks!

There is a great product out there that is called the Rust-O-Less. It firmly fits shaving cream cans and prevents rust from staining countertops.

I was going to suggest baking soda also.  It gets rid of rust stains really well.  :)

I second barkeeper's friend. It still takes some elbow grease, but I haven't found anything that works better.
