try lemon juice and salt crystals on stain - if it works possible to obtain citric acid crystals from chemists - mix up a solution of acid and salt and apply with a cloth
good luck

Stains can also be removed using citric acid/salt solution - suggest using lemon juice and salt first before buying citric acid crystals - which i use for pickling silver soldered copperwork(less ferocious than sulphuric acid!) - the above works well with iron mould stains!
