    How does the chrome hold up to the steel wool? I was surprised that there really are no discernible scratches or marks from the aluminum foil.

    Steel wool and aluminum are far softer than Chrome so it holds up just fine. I have never seen scratches from it.

    I always use the finest steel wool I can find.
    They make some pretty ruff stuff, I'd stay away from it.

    Good to know. I have some triple ought, and maybe even some 0000 too. I would suspect that, overall, it would work better than having to keep "re crumpling" the aluminum foil.

    Very fine steel wool worked great for getting the rust spots off the mufflers on my Concours.
