Polish chrome - Mineral deposits on chrome faucets & other tarnished chrome make haste in the presence of lemon--rub with a squeezed lemon half, rinse, and lightly buff with a soft cloth. Polish copper - A halved lemon dipped in salt or baking powder can also be used to brighten copper cookware, as well as brass, copper, or stainless steel. Dip a juiced lemon half in salt (or baking soda or cream of tartar for the salt) & rub on the affected area. Let it stay on for 5 minutes. (see next page
Then rinse in warm water and polish dry.
I have found that water mixed with a little bleach cleans chrome very, very well. Use a paper towel and just wipe it down, then dry it with another paper towel. Not only does it make is shine like Windex does but it also keeps water from sticking to it, which we know can cause water spots.
Doing this means you don't have to clean your chrome everyday, more like every two or three days which can save you some time =) Hope this helps!!
