got chrome?

i was just watching Myth Busters on the discovery channel. they tested cola versus the leading chrome cleaner/polish.

they scrubbed 1/2 a chrome bumber with the polish and the other half with cola and alum. foil. guess which side was cleaner. you guessed it, the cola. they were saying (and it showed) how shiny the chrome was vs the polish. try that y'all next time you clean your chrome

no, the alum foil ionizes the rust and the cola uses the phosphoric acid in there. it wont eat it away. and for the messy/sticky, just take a hose to it afterwards and it will still be cleaner
