Chrome is a beautiful metal, but taking care of it can be a pain. Even though it tends to be more resistant to corrosion than other metals, it still reacts to oxygen and water to form some pretty brutal rust.
Many car rims are made with the metal, and when it rusts, this can be bad for your tires. If you don’t want to spend a pretty penny on getting new rims, YouTuber bcperry15 has a cheap solution for you! It may sound like a hoax, but a simple combination of aluminum foil, water, and good old-fashioned scrubbing can get rid of the red oxide…just watch!
The magic behind the reaction resides in the heat created from the rubbing, which forms a sort of paste from the aluminum oxide and water. This dissolves the iron oxide.
You can also use Coca-Cola instead of water.
