Removing rust from chrome probably sounds like a pretty difficult job but it’s actually easy, super cheap and even chemical free! Can it get any better? The trick is aluminum foil!
Are you ready for this tip? You simply need to wet your aluminum foil. Crumple it up in a ball and run it under some cold water.
Now start scrubbing with it! The rust will come right off. If the aluminum starts to get dry, make sure you dip it in the water again. You can keep repeating this step until the rust is all gone.
