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.

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
