reynolds does the trick

i've been working on my latest project, an old '82 bianchi super corsa frame that i'm cleaning up for a single speed/fixed around town bike.  when i got it it looked pretty beat up and there was a lot of rust on the chrome lugs.  over the years i've used steel wool, brass wool, brasso, noxon, and a few other concoctions to remove the rust, then i had heard that using aluminum foil with water works better.  i was skeptical... but tonight i tried it and low and behold it works! within a few minutes of light polishing most of the rust was gone.  props to reynolds wrap!

Great tip, and kind to the original plating!
