I have always used fine steel wool, like 0000. Works likes a charm

Yeah but, is that with or without the cola  ;D

Hey, Chilli, no need to take the piss out of the cola (so to speak), it works!!  ;D

What you should consider after cleaning the chrome to your satisfaction is protecting it with a wax . Lacquer will give you longer protection but it is a bit of a bugger when it starts to come off. .

A good quality wax that won't burst the bank is Bilt Hambler.  .


N' gie it a final polish wi' an auld St Mirren scarf ye chucked awa' in disgust at half time.
