Bathroom rust stains that won't go away!

Medicine cabinet rust.

Medicine cabinet rust.

I just moved into my home, and I have a rust problem in the bathroom! On the edges of the bathtub, and in the medicine cabinet there are some pretty tough rust stains.

It looks like they are from shaving can bottoms or something. I have tried multiple things to get rid of these stains, and nothing has worked!

Here is what I’ve tried:

1. Hot soap and water
2. Scrubbing Bubbles Mega Shower Foamer
3. Goof Off: RustAid
4. Bar Keepers Friend
5. Lemons and salt

In each scenario I used a washcloth and/or a scrubbing brush. The stains are a tad lighter, but still very apparent (pictures attached).

Can someone please provide me with a PROVEN solution??

I used the vinegar and sponge, and it worked!! The stains are still faintly there, but you cant see them unless you intently look for them. Thank you all so much for giving me a REAL solution to my problem! You guys are awesome!!
