Is there any way to restore old chrome?

I have 50 year old bathrooms in a rental with old corroded chrome. It's cloudy, greenish in spots, a bit rusty and nasty looking. The pieces are inset into the tile and were to hold soap and tooth brushes at one time. Removing them would break the tile. We tried some Noxon on them which didn't do much. Would Wenol help?

Is there anything that can be rubbed on them to deposit some metal on the chrome to make them look better? I once saw these products to make wood look like metal. You would apply it and then polish it up. Any spray on metal that would give them an even matte metal look I could use?

I'm sure others have dealt with this in an old house. Have you found a solution at all? Please help if you can. Thanks much!

You could try the metal look spray paint, would need to remove the rust and corrosion, and apply a rust converter, prime, and paint.
