Simple Cleaning Trick: How to Remove Rust From Chrome in the Bathroom

There’s a secret I learned from my grandfather when he would clean his tools and I’ve been using this same trick for cleaning the rust off our chrome light fixtures and shower rods.
So, do you want to know how to remove rust from your chrome bathroom fixtures and keep the rust from coming back?
You need two simple things...Bar Keeper's Friend and Minwax Finishing Wax.
All you need to do is make a thick paste with Bar Keeper's Friend and water. Clean as much of the rust off that you can with the paste and a soft rag.
Clean off the residue from the Bar Keeper's Friend. Then you can wipe on a thin coat of the Minwax Paste with a dry paper towel. Let it dry for about five minutes, then buff off the wax with another clean paper towel.

Are there any cleaning tips or tricks you learned from your grandparents that you still use today?
