what kindof soap? car washing soap or dawn or what?

If I use this on my bumper will there be any visible scratches?

Can I use it on chrome plated plastic?
sorry didnt notice this... yeah aluminum foil/renoylds wrap/ what ever... it wont scratch if you fold the foil, crumpling it will cause scratches however... i used dish soap

S.O.S pads work great.. anything chrome or stainless will come out mirror shine after scrubbing it with an S.O.S pad..


edit make sure you wet it first.. oh and it has to be polished stainless in order for this to work.. im telling you just give it a shot..

I dont know if anyone is still looking for a good and quick way to clean chrome even with rust spots forming, I have always used a wire wheel rim cleaner for the old school spoke rims you spray it on and wash off it washes away everything from the rust(unless the rust is out of control already ie deep pits or holes) to tar and road paint. I think its the quickest and best way for me, I was the head of detailing for a few dealerships before going back to school last fall. Not that it takes a genius to detail a car but, you learn a lot over the years of doing it 5-6 days a week
