Default removing surface rust

Hi Guys

I was cleaning up the workbench earlier and I noticed that a couple of my drill bits had some small spots of surface rust on them, and I was wondering what do you guys think is the best to use to remove it? and also do you guys wipe your tools down with any oil or anything after using them ? I usually spray some silicone oil on a shop towel and wipe off screwdrivers and pliers that could have become wet or dirty but I guess I missed some



I know that surface rust is just a saying and that rust is rust, but its very light in color so thats what I call it
