    Had this towel rail in the outhouse for a bit with something leaning against it and it got rusty.

    nothing deep rooted, just superficial rust.

    I fitted it and it works fine, so now I need to clean it up.

    Any ideas how I can get this looking better?

    Sherdog first then Google init

    Scotch bright pad, and maybe sand paper then direct to metal anti-rust primer followed by paint.
