How to Remove Rust From Exhaust Tips
Exhaust Tips (double exhaust pipe image by green308 from Fotolia.com)

When you turn off your car at the end of a long drive, the hot exhaust gases float up to the top of the exhaust tubing and condense to form water. When you start up your car again a few hours later, water comes out of the tips, and sometimes it stays in the ends, forming rust. Rust on chrome isn't a good look, but it can be cleaned up fairly easily with a little bit of elbow grease and the right product.

    Rub the steel wool over the chrome polish and the exhaust tip aggressively, then remove any polish residue with a microfiber towel.
