    So what is the product????
    Oxalic, and try some of it on that degrading teak while you are at it, it will come up looking new.

    Just a word of warning - I used to use it lots as well but it strips any polish away as well as the corrosion products. So if you use it to clean the chrome its worth using metal polish afterwards otherwise the rot comes back very quickly.

    Neat trick for turning a half-empty tub into a full one, must remember that.

    Here in Spain we have Ferronet, does rust on stainless or GRP a treat and can brighten teak. It also gets cal off the windows and the skin off your hands! Also useful for de-cal-ing the tap fittings at home.
