Simple Green, diluted with warm water. Use a leaf blower to thoroughly dry.

If you use Simple Green use it with great care... It is known discolor Al. The two don't mix...

However the leaf blower sounds like a good idea!

Where did you buy the Simichrome from? Did you first polish with the Simichrome, then polish with Mothers Billet - thus polishing twice? Also, did this 2-step process last longer?

Use whatever kind of chrome polish you like then rub them down with flour and a dry rag. It works great just like Daniii said. It makes them look really good without a lot of effort.

Throw a coat of carnauba wax on after they are sparkling, and it will keep the shine longer! I tried it for the first time a few weeks ago, and it worked great.
