First, let’s talk about chrome

Before we get started, it’s helpful to understand that chrome isn’t a solid metal. It’s a thin plating that sits on top of a metal surface, giving objects that high-end look. Chrome is designed to ease cleaning and increase surface hardness, as well as help to prevent corrosion and general wear and tear. It’s also designed to have a high shine, sought after by people who are attracted to the mirror-like finish. 

When it seems that a chrome object has rusted — strictly speaking — it hasn’t. The chrome layer has actually corroded, exposing the metal underneath which then rusts. 

Remove rust from chrome — the steps to success:

Step 1. Preparation

If the chrome surface is peeling off, this is something to tackle first. Lightly sand or remove the peeled areas before you get started.
