I have a 1955 GE Liberator. In some areas, the enamel on the rangetop looks a little thin and scratched. In one of these areas we recently developed a few small rust stains. I am not sure if it is rust on the surface from something placed on top, or if the rust is emanating from the parent metal of the rangetop due to the scratches.

Can someone suggest a safe method of rust removal? I did not want to try anything without asking folks that know a lot more than I do.

I would make a paste of Bar Keeper's Friend, and apply it to the stain. Wait a few minutes (no more than five), rub gently, and rinse.
