What do you use to clean the chrome?
 
My 2018 Murano is one year old this month. For its birthday I cleaned and waxed it today and the paint looks shiny and nice.

I am noticing on the chrome trim on the grill, rear bumper and below the doors that there are spots that look like water spots that do not come off easily. A lot of rubbing and buffing does get them off but I am looking for an easier way.

I am old and remember using 00 steel wool on bumpers when they really were chrome. These trim pieces look like plastic to me and I am afraid to try that.

Suggestions?

White vinegar is what I try first, then some rubbing alcohol usually does the trick if it is a really stubborn.

Black Magic Chrome Cleaner, then a coat of Turtle Wax for Chrome. I'll usually get 4 or 5 washes before have to do it again, unless I've been driving at night and drive thru a bug bomb.

I also use the Black Magic Chrome Cleaner on a cloth to remove stubborn dried bug guts from the windshield, the front edge of the car and the back of the mirrors. Always finish with a clear water rinse to remove any residue. Buff dry.

No way should steel wool be used on any modern chrome piece, unless you want to permanently damage it.

Have a good day.

You can use the Klasse Twins (AIO/SG) to clean and seal it. This is a plastic chrome finish and not real chrome. You should treat it the same like your car paint.
