turtle wax has a pretty darn good chrome cleaner/polish!

Agree with the turtle wax chrome polish. I just got some for around my windows and they shine like new.

Coca Cola??? Is that a joke or does it actually work. I probably sound pretty dumb but I have never heard of such a thing....

Great chrome cleaner
 
Try Never Dull on chrome, aluminum, etc... This stuff comes like cotton soak wadding - that you wipe on, let dry & wipe off. You don't wax chrome because it needs to breath and gives off oils. Never Dull removes dirt, grease, even some rust and leaves a very fine oil residue behind to prevent dirt, brake dust etc... from attacking surface. :wave

coca cola is a good cleaner for corosion like battery terminal ends and external metals. Kind of scary demostration done recently - fill a small glass with Coke, put a roofing nail in the solution and cover it with wax paper. Leave it for 24 hours and see what happens. You'll find the nail will have disolved. - Nice eh? and we drink this stuff
:wave

theres a good mythbusters episode on whether or not coke cleans chrome. They test a bunch of different things on the chrome but I dnt remember which one worked best lol. U might wanna just look up tht episode or something.
