Rust on a Drop Ceiling

I have a drop ceiling in my bath with metal rails that have rusted badly. How can I remove the rust without damaging the ceiling tiles. Can I paint over the rusted rails with a rust prohibiting paint without special preparation?

I'd think about removing the drop ceiling. Its better to remove the cause than to fix the problem, if possible. sometimes one finds a good surprise underneath once drop ceilings are removed. If you decide to paint the rails, I'd ask at a home improvement store like Lowes or a local paint store to the info you need to do it. Best of luck,

I painted our drop ceiling track over 1 year ago and it still looks great! I used rustoleum paint and just used a dry rag to wipe away loose particles. Good luck!!!!!
