You could electropolish them
If you feel like, or can remove the stanchions and electropolish them. This would have the added benefit of getting underneath the base (where we see rust all the time). All rust would be removed and the surface rendered fully passive. Whatever you do do NOT use steel wool on stainless. Small particles will embed in the surface and rust will spread to the s/s quickly. I will post a couple pictures showing before/after electropolishing of some 306 and 316 ss tubing.
