tarnished chrome trim on a dishwasher

Posted by pvel (My Page) on

I have a dishwasher with thin strips of chrome trim that are tarnished and blotchy. Short of getting a new dishwasher, is there any way to restore the trim? Can I sand and paint them/ Or rip them out and put some new strips? Thanks. Paul

Go to the car department and get some chrome cleaner and wax. I have a towel stand in my bathroom that was pitted and looked awful from the moisture in the bathroom. A treatment with the chrome cleaner and an application of car wax and it looked good as new.

Or try Bartenders Helper.

Are you sure it is real chrome or is it chrome looking plastic?

Be careful if isn't real chrome. Otherwise I go for Barkeepers Freind. Best product for so many cleaning jobs in the kitchen snd bath.
