you could see if your local windscreen replacement firm has some jewellers rouge they would let you have, watch makers use it to clean watch glass.

try the following lemon juice, salt and ice. stain is gone.
or try warm vingar in a spray bottle and a scrub brush loaded with baking soda. Sometimes lemon flavored Kool-Aid works well on rust stains just pour on, mist with water and let sit.

or you can use a copper brush to disloge the rust with the above
