Chemistry - let the more reactive metal (aluminium) steal the oxygen from the less reactive one (iron)
Works well on corroded (oxidised) silver - can't say I've tried it on rust on fabrics, but in principle it should work

and iron is slightly soluble in water, iron oxide has v little solubility -

It might work (aluminium oxide is white, so shouldn't stain a white fabric visibly)

Got something to say?
