  1. I need to remove a rust like stain from jeans. However, I believe it is a stain from some kind of moth or bug. I leave my clothes hanging while I’m away for months at a time. I live in the tropics of puerto rico and we do seem to get these yelowish stains just from clothing that sit around and not used for a long time.
