    Try CLR, its a product that removes calcium lime and rust. Its going to be very difficult though and from my experience the stain never really comes out. You can try a scotch brite pad but it will scuff up the formica. The scuff wont look as bad as the rust.

    Get some Barkeepers pal. it quite is a powdered cleanser akin to scouring powder yet no longer almost as harsh. It won't scratch your chrome yet will do away with the rust. hose down the exterior, sprinkle, smear the powder around with a sponge and enable it "artwork" for 10-quarter-hour. come back and supply it a sturdy scrub. you will would desire to rinse countless situations to get the powder haze off yet Barkeeper's works great on something steel! Then to maintain your chrome from doing the rust element lower back, take some motor vehicle wax, carry on with in accordance to the instructions on the kit and buff. the motor vehicle wax will seal up the chrome and keep it shining.
