How do I get rust stains off of car paint?

How do I remove rust without damaging the paint on my car? My dad gave me his old vehicle, but I noticed some rust stains. They seem easy enough to remove, though.

Answer
That’s neat that his vehicle was passed down to you! Don’t worry, rust can be removed. To get rust stains off of your car paint, follow these steps:
Step one: Wash your car properly with car soap, washing mitts, two buckets of water, a hose, and a microfiber waffle-weave towel. This version of a microfiber towel is specially designed for drying.
Step two: Once the vehicle is dry to the touch, apply all-in-one polish onto the target area with a clean microfiber cloth. Alternate between rubbing the product in circular and side-to-side motions to best remove the rust.
Step three: Repeat step two until the stain is removed.
Step four: If the rust stain is old and tough to remove, try using a more abrasive polish instead. Follow the same steps as the all-in-one polish. Once the stain is removed, buff the surface with a clean microfiber cloth for a glimmering finish.
Step five: As a preventative measure, apply wax or sealant.
Enjoy your new-to-you vehicle!
