    Chrome measels

    Any recommendations for cleaning chrome that has been left untouched inside for a few years? It doesn't have rusty measels, just that sort of dark, slightly green measels, presumably from the copper plate leaching through the pores. I think a gentle, non-abrasive cleaner is the answer, i.e. not Autosol?

    Thanks, WD40 will be easy to try, and I might have a bit of T-Cut here too. Does that Mer actually work? I've always walked quickly past their stalls, and assumed it was a type of wax?

    had a bottle of mer knocking around the garage for ages and never used it, tried on my pop one day and it was like using tcut and wax polish combined, soon found out where the paint was thin. I just though with it being mildly abrasive that its worth giving it a go.
    the tcut will definately work though.

    Had a go at it on a small area today and the WD40 didn't really want to know, but the T-Cut worked well, thanks. I have also been told that there is a milder, liquid Autosol available, so might have a look for that. The Mer actually sounds like it could work, as after polishing the chrome you could still see the pores, so I figured a wax coating would healp seal it.
