I have orange spots on my white laundry. Are the clothes ruined?

There can be iron particles in your water that pass through the City’s filtration system and even your water softener. If you get orange spots or if the laundry is slightly discolored, it can be fixed, as long as you don’t dry the clothes first. There is a product that the City distributes at no charge called “Rover”. Rover is a powder form of rust remover. You can pick it up at City Hall located at 4801 West 50th Street or at the Public Works building located at 7450 Metro Boulevard.
