Hi, I'm Rachel Yatuzis and I'm going to show you the best way to clean chrome. There are tons of different chrome cleaners out there. There's one for cars, one for your household, there's things like this, it's a general metal polish that you can use on chrome. The key is you don't want to use anything too abrasive. Chrome is also a soft metal like copper and other things. So you want a nice soft cloth. You don't want to use steel wool on chrome or anything like that obviously. And you really just want to follow the directions on your chrome cleaner. There's some cleaners that I've used before that are you know more earth friendly and you can just spray them on a rag and you know, wipe it. Or with this one, you just dip the rag in to this cleaner, wipe it on in a circular motion, and then use the dry end of the cloth to wipe it clean. There's lots of different chrome cleaners out there. What I would do before you decide is figure out what you're using the chrome cleaner for. Get on the Internet and look up the reviews of these different chrome cleaners. Because I think that one chrome cleaner may be better for cars, one may be better for your house. Just look up the reviews on it and see what you think you'd like to try. Just don't scratch it. I'm Rachel Yatuzis and that is the best way to clean chrome.
