WD40 on a paper towel, that should remove any surface rust that hasn't really 'rooted'.

"Krud Kutter" rust remover (available from Menard's) will take out all but the very worst rust, mostly leaving the remaining chrome untouched. Spray it on, wipe it off. If more persuasion is needed, use only brass or plastic, no steel wool.

Good Luck,
