Door Chrome Handle Maintenance

Hi, anybody knows how to clean and maintain ur chrome shine?

Dunno, what product should I use. Usually I wear it dry with cloth after car wash. Is it correct?

I know this is weird as this product is made for a completely different application but it's by far the best thing I've ever used for cleaning shiny objects like Mirrors or chrome as well as plastics like it's designed for.

It's pretty freaking cheap too.

I like the super super cheap price but i've never try a spraying solution to my chrome. Anyone! what is different between spraying and waxing cleaner. How it works?

Waxing isn't really cleaning. This stuff is a great cleaner which you can then follow with a quality wax. If you don't clean first and there are hard water spots it can trap them under the wax and leave it looking just as bad as before.

There are some products that claim to be cleaner waxes but I'm personally not a fan of them.

I use just the Lamin X cleaner on all of the chrome on my bike and it makes it shine like new even though it's 7 years old with 36k miles.

The best part of this stuff is that you can also use it on the plastic dash boards, gauge bezels, pretty much the entire interior of the vehicle and it will protect the plastics from UV cracking or fading. It also keeps people from using products like window cleaner on plastic bezels, the ammonium in most window cleaners actually can cause premature fading of clear plastics.

I use a damp microfiber cloth to wipe clean. Use the dry part of the cloth to remove any leftover streaks/water...

Wash, then dry. Done.
