Re: Reel Maintenance and cleaning help
As far as the chrome pieces of your reels....Simichrome by Happich is outstanding. It will make your reel look like new; it also works on the Stainless parts as well. For Bakelite and other plastic parts of the reel I use a nice car wax that has a little cleaner in it. Regarding parts of reels that have been pitted beyond repair you can use a drop or two of diluted acid to remove green residue but be careful and easy on scrubbing. Hope this helps.
