    Rust removers like CLR work good. Mine was real nasty/rusty and I used some rust aid I already had in my shop. CLR is a lot less hazardous. Do it in an open area so fumes do not build up. Rubber gloves and glasses are suggested.

    Ive had good luck with bleach and soap.
    I let it soak for a few days.
