How to Clean Rusty Chrome the Non Toxic Way!

Taking my bathroom d├ęcor que from hotels I stayed in I hung a chrome towel rack shelf in the Master Bathroom shower. It is handy as a towel rack and even better when I need a place to hang some hand washing up to dry. I popped a little plastic tray on top so I can use it as a storage shelf for shampoo and such.

This is great, because I have a towel rack that looks exactly like that. I was thinking about replacing it, but now I'm going to follow your tips and get it cleaned.

Love this idea! I'm going to have to use this idea. CLR alone just doesn't do the trick!
