Does anyone know of a product that will remove black sooty deposits from the chrome trim of a gas fire please ?

I have tried a metal polish and also some fine wire wool but so far not made much impression

Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

I seem to recall an episode of Mythbusters where they used Coca-Cola and tin foil to clean chrome. lol.
As far as serious suggestions go, I would recommend using a cutting compound such as G3 with some wire wool or see if you can get hold of some water based wheel cleaner, I believe Halfords call it custom wheel cleaner. Don't use acid based cleaner on chrome

Don't know how to get it of but I would be VERY concerned that it has appeared in the first place, definite signs of incomplete combustion and C.O. :(
