How do I polish chrome?

Chrome Fixtures

If not properly maintained, chrome fixtures can become dull and cloudy. After cleaning a bathroom, you want your chrome fixtures to sparkle! For blinding brilliance, make a paste of baking soda and dishwashing liquid. Apply this to your chrome fixtures and rub clean with a cloth. Warm vinegar will also make your bathroom shine. Here's an additional bathroom cleaning tip: To clean stains from your bathroom chrome and tile, use baby oil! Wipe off with a cloth diaper for a lint free shine.

I like to use rubbing alcohol on my chrome fixtures. It gets all those water spots and dry's quickly.

I use rubbing rubbing alcohol on a paper towel on chrome. It shines and dries quickly. I would ues baking soda and liquid dish washing soap if the alcohol didn't work.

You should apply that baking soda mixture on the chrome fixtures after using vinegar, because vinegar is acidic and while it may remove stains, it can cause the surface to oxidise in a while and become dull. Baking soda, which is a base, will neutralize any residue from the vinegar.

After cleaning the chrome, wipe it down with WD-40. The watermspots, etc. are much easier to clean. (I use a lint free coffee filter.)

Tried on kitchen & bathroom faucets, as well as stove drip trays. Works great! Would also like to try on car chrome.
