How to clean Chrome
Chromium, a hard blue white metal, has a brilliant luster used as a plating on other metals. Chrome bumpers, auto body trim, appliance handles and electric fry pans are examples of chrome plating. If grease  builds up and is baked on it will burn and be hard to remove. Washing chrome plated items in greasy dishwater leaves a greasy film that will burn on.

    Always wash in sudsy water. Rinse and wipe to restore the shine. Never use abrasive cleaners on chrome as it will scratch and dull the surface. I use baking soda to remove gummy residue sprinked on a soft damp cloth or sponge. Vinegar can also be applied if you rinse and buff with a soft dry clost. Difficult spots can use a metal polish made especially for chrome and soft metals. For baked on grease on small appliances try a mixture below. Baked on grease may require several applications.


Vinegar: To clean chrome, wipe with a soft cloth dipped in undiluted white or cider vinegar.
Baby Oil: Apply baby oil with a soft cloth and polish to remove stains from chrome trim on faucets, kitchen appliances, vehicles, etc.
Aluminum Foil: Briskly scrub rust spots on car bumpers with a piece of crumpled aluminum foil, shiny side up. Also works well on the chrome shafts of golf clubs.
Chrome faucets: are easily cleaned with soapy water. Rinse and wipe dry with a paper towel to restore luster. An old toothbrush helps get deposits of dirt out from under edges of faucet. For hard-to-remove spots, use silver polish, rinse, and wipe dry.
