Unhappy Orange condensation

Can anyone tell me why the condensation from my shower leaves an orange residue on the walls? The water itself is clear and clean.

Bright orange stains on fixtures, drainboard surfaces and pet dishes are caused by the interaction of oxygen in the air with dissolved rust, resulting in an iron hydroxide precipitate on the surfaces.
