Steel wool will get rid of the rust but not sure about the paint. I'm guessing most paints will be toxic so I'd see how it looks after the steel wool? Good luck!

Plasticote (sp) paint, I think you can get it from most diy shops.

If you get plasticote you need to ensure it's the non-toxic child safe one. From what I have been told by a mousie expert though, all japlac paints are safe.

I have seen people power coat their degu cages before and that is supposedly a safe option but can't say I am 100% sure. It'd leave a much nicer finish though. :)
