June 16, 2005As long as you make sure your chrome is free of dirt which would scratch it, Windex works well. Been using it on chrome for years with very few scratches at all.
Mothers chrome polish is great too. Need very little and it wipes right off, easily.
April 1, 2007no good ! amonia takes wax or glaze off, leaving chrome unprotected

. . . and if you miss a spot (leaving some white powder on), you can still get if off even after heat cycles.

I've also heard that windex is bad for chrome.
April 2, 2007Windex that has ammonia in it is bad for chrome.
You certainly won't notice any affect for awhile but be aware.
Stick to chrome cleaner or mothers as stated.
April 2, 2007I remember when I was a kid, I used windex to clean the pipes on my dad's scooter while he was at work. I thought he would be real surprised..........well he was. Then he was really ticked when he got back from his first ride and the pipes turned a real pretty blue the whole length!
I have been afraid to use it since. I use either a wax or chrome polish.

Water, maybe a little Turtle Wash/Wax in it, and a clean towel.
April 2, 2007Just make sure you use the Windex WITHOUT ammonia....no ill affects, and it makes the chrome look great...
November 18, 2007Windex should not be used on your mirors ,it will remove the silver from the back leaving black streaks
November 18, 2007I use Turtle Wax spray and wipe or Eagle One spray and wipe for a quick easy shine on the chrome,paint and even the windshields inside and out.It leaves everything shiny,slick as can be and doesn't hurt anything and most of the bugs hose off pretty easily without rubbing.
waytoowicked has seen my bagger and it'd never seen wax or polish when he saw it,just the spray stuff. That's all I'd ever used on it in my avatar pics or on my bikes in my gallery pics. It needs re doing every few weeks but doesn't build up like waxes.
