This may have been said before but if you are trying to make your chrome exhaust look sparkley and you are in a rush use a flash wipe or any kitchen wet wipes...its amazing spent no time at all and it looks new again.

Just an idea!

Good tip! I find that the glass wipes are good too, as they have alcohol in, they're quite good for cleaning things like your steering wheel too Very Happy

I'll have to give it a go on mine! The bottom half and outside come up a treat, but the top bit seems to be burnt on hard! Tried autosol, but to no avail Sad

Will give this a go! Very Happy

The quickest way I find is spray some decreaser on it before rinse car down or after snow foam the car. Then all you do is rinse off and wipe over, keeps it looking clean then all you have to do is polish when starts looking dull again Smile

Try toothpaste & then cover with cucumber for 20 minutes before buffing

Don't know if it'll work but sounds good Laughing
