So I open my guitars case that I literally haven't played in months..and low and behold there is some rust on the frets. I tried scraping it off with a towel, but to no avail. Anybody have any guitar-safe methods for removing rust from the frets?

fine sand paper?

Anything I can do without buying much/ordering online? I'm a bit wary of sand paper though..

You could cover the fretboard in masking tape, that would protect it from the sandpaper, but if you wrapped some light sandpaper around a long wooden block and gently ran it across the frets it would remove the rust without hitting the fretboard.

take the strings off
put masking tape on the fretboard(NOT duct tape! masking tape!-the blue stuff!)
use a small bit of 0000 steel wool to rub the rust off.
repeat for all frets
clean up all metal pieces with a damp paer towel/cloth and then dry it all up.
GENTLY peel off masking tape.
make sure all is clean around frets!

Then your best bet would be to take it to someone who is more knowledgeable than your or who is qualified to do something like this.It'd be better to have someone who knows what they're doing handle this instead of you doing it yourself when you lack knowledge/confidence.It'd be awful to end up in an even worse situation because you tried to fix something and messed up yah know?

If you own a Floyd equipped guitar you'll need to learn how eventually, so just bite the bullet and try using the directions in this forum.
