There are specific products at home centers...almost all contain oxalic acid as the main ingredient AFAIK. You can also buy it by itself and mix according to instructions on the container.

Take a look at your local Dollar store or Wal-Mart for a product called "The Works". One squirt and rince it off and it's gone.

CLR is designed for this as well.

CLR will also etch the concrete/cement. It works great for rust on surfaces it won't attack like ceramic or acrylic.
