A chrome tea kettle doesn't look good unless it's bright and shiny. It's not as simple as washing the dishes, however. There are several effective options for cleaning chrome. For simple shining, rub the kettle with dry baking soda or flour. For more thorough cleaning, use rubbing alcohol on a soft cloth. This will remove drips and grease. Then dry thoroughly. You can also clean chrome by rubbing it with a ball made from crumpled aluminum foil, or by using Murphy's Oil Soap (2 tablespoons in a gallon of water).
