Full Answer

Use the following procedures to clean chrome exhaust pipes.

  2. If the chrome is dirty but not rusted, coat the dirty chrome with degreaser, and let it soak on the chrome's surface.

  3. Remove degreaser
  4. Rinse the chrome with clear water.

  5. Polish the chrome
  6. Apply polish, then buff it off after it dries.

  7. Clean rusty chrome
  8. For slightly rusted chrome, gently scrub the chrome with cotton wadding products that combine the cleaner, polish and mildly abrasive cotton wadding. The wadding is just abrasive enough to scrape off bits of rust while the polish fills in the minute divots that form from the rust.

  9. Buff the chrome
  10. Shine the chrome with a soft cloth.
