I recently read an article of how to get rid of rust on a chrome bumper.
When my husband brought our dump truck home to be washed, I decided to try this “trick”.
What you do, is take a piece of aluminum foil. Using the shiny side, you rub it on the rust spots, on the chrome bumper.
After the bumper was washed, I took a piece of aluminum foil, wrapped it around my knuckles, and “scrubbed” on the rust spots. Amazingly, the rust disappeared. I tried this method on both dry and wet surfaces. Having the surface wet, seemed to make the process of removing the rust spots easier.
I did notice that the foil appeared to “scratch” the chrome, but after I buffed it out, I didn’t notice any scratches.
I tried this on an older vehicle. I wouldn’t use this method on a new vehicle, until I did a “test” spot, in an inconspicuous area.
I used heavy duty foil for taking the rust off of our truck bumper. I found that the aluminum foil seemed to descinagrate after a period of time.
Using aluminum foil, may be a way to get rust off of chrome wheels, as well.
Remember to do a small test area before using this method of removing rust.
Like I said, I used it on an older vehicle, and am amazed at the results.
