Default treating stone chips

Hi there

The hood of my silver coloured 2001 Honda Civic shows some stone chipped
spots, some of which look brownish (i.e. they started to rust I assume).

I purchased a touch-up paint, but before I apply it, I would like to know
what people recommend I should treat these spots with.

A fellow at the Honda dealership told me to get rid of the surface rust with
a "metal cloth". The other guy told me not to do that so that I do not
increase the size of these dots.

Is there any paste that is good for this? Should I use a Dremmel tool to
carefully remove this rust?

Any comments are appreciated.

If the chips are fairly recent, you can just wipe them with a paper
towel with a little WD40 on it, and the surface rust will come right
off. I would then hit it again with a damp cloth to get the WD40
remnants off before applying the touch-up paint. I do this a lot, and
find that if I use the little brush that comes attached to the
touch-up bottle's cap, I put on too much paint. A tiny drop from a
toothpick works better.
