Soak in a highly dilluted vinegar solution for about 15 mins.

Re: hardware corrosion

there's no pitting. Just some green oxidation in some areas polishing can't get to.

Re: hardware corrosion

How bad is it? I use Nev-r-dull for general metal polishing. Nothing is going to take pitting out, however.

Chrome is an element. If you find any mechanical abrasions or a poor plating process that produced fractures and flaking, re-chrome. Use a plater that understands the materials involved.

chrome plated bronze. There was a post a while back that dipped the parts in a solution.

Re: hardware corrosion

Definitely depends on what the material is. Chrome plated bronze, stainless, and polished aluminum have different modes of corrosion but look similar.
