What do you guys use or suggest using for polishing chrome, like, board racks, tower speakers, etc.

Ok, you left yourself open on this one...A blonde

But seriously, I think there's a chrome polish/wax?

Yeah, I know you just take a rag and polish chrome. There is stuff out there you can buy to help out though. I'm just asking if anybody has used some and what works good.

Chrome plated steel (not polished aluminum):
1. Clean thoroughly with windex
2. Polish with Dupont white polishing compound
3. Wax
Should shine like a mirror

If it's polished aluminum it's a different process, and that depends on weather the aluminum is polished, anodized, or coated. With polished it also depends on how badly it's tarnished or scratched. If it's really bad you might even need to start with fine sandpaper.
