If you can't remove it dab some White Out on it to completely camouflage it.
I thought about that but I thought it was weird. Haha now I know it's not just me it would actually work! Thank you so much! Someone said vinegar would work to get the rust stains out but it didn't seem to work for me they're pretty bad
I know for rusted tools they say 1 gal of white vinegar and 1 cup salt and let tools soak then wash them and use wd 40 to stop them from rusting again so you could try a small mixture of this and use a paper towel to sit on the rust and see if that would take the rust off
Have you tried WD 40?
I, too, have cheated and used "Wite-out" for a number of things. I always wore white summer leather sandals and pumps, took care of any scratches on them. Perfect for walls too, once you have a bottle in the house you will find all sorts of things to fix.
My refrigerator was very rusted and did not have a smooth service. What I did was buy some spray paint for appliances. You can get it at Lowe's or Home Depot, etc. But a BIG lesson learned - take the refrigerator out side away from everything. When you spray tiny particles go everywhere. Also, would highly recommend wearing safety glasses and a nose/mouth mask. By the way it came out very nice!
