You need to use vinegar which will help break up the rust stain. Soak the item in vinegar if possible (it won't hurt the plastic). If this is NOT possible then place a heavy vinegar soaked rag, sponge, or cotton balls over the stain for up to an hour or so (apply more vinegar if it starts to dry out) and then scrub the stain off. You might want to wear gloves when doing this as vinegar can be very harsh on the skin. Finish by rinsing the surface with clean water.
