Chrome can be a beautiful accent to your kitchen or bathroom or a classic handlebar on your bike. Chrome can also be a bit unsightly if it is rusting. Have you ever thought of cleaning chrome to remove rust with coca-cola? You will be amazed at how well this works.

Depending on the size of the rust spot, you will either want to crumple up a piece of aluminium foil exposing as much of the shiny side as possible, or simply wrap a bit of aluminium foil around you finger shiny side up if you are only cleaning a small area.

Dip the aluminium foil in Coca Cola.

Rub the aluminium foil with the coke on it until the rust is removed from the chrome.

You may need to re-dip the foil in coke and repeat if the first application does not take.

Dry the clean surface of the chrome with a towel.


Once the chrome is clean, you may want to use chrome polish to protect the chrome.


Make sure you are using the shiny side of the aluminium foil.
