Would CLR cleaner work on rusty looking interior hinges, bolts, etc making them look better? Any other product?

Specifically which bolts and hinges are rusty? Remove them and hit them with some spray paint.

Then do it quick. I hit those same items in place with what ever paint I had in my hand (may have been satin rustoleum or fusion). No need to go crazy with (any) prep for those parts.

I know CLR works for removing lime and other forms of dissolved minerals, it works on rust too?

CLR works ok on rust, but if you really want to remove rust, take the part out and soak it in cheap toilet bowl cleaner for a few minutes. I guarantee you will be impressed. Paint it quick though as it will flash rust very quickly. DO NOT put aluminum in toilet cleaner. I restore antique Coleman lanterns, and toilet bowl cleaner has saved me countless hours of work literally. I usually use "The Works" brand.
