    You probably have hard water. If that's the case, you can't use chlorine bleach, or it'll just turn everything yellow and rust orange, because it reacts with the iron in the water. You could try getting some oxiclean. Make a paste with it, and put it on your clothes, and let them soak for awhile in the wash. That might help get rid of the iron stains.
    There is also a product called "iron out" that you can use with your clothes to get rid of the rust stains that the bleach made. It should be at your hardware store. It's just powder, and you throw some in next time you wash those whites.
