January 28, 2009steel wool won''t scrach it. use some kind of cleaner to lubricate it, it will work much better. glass cleaner will work fine
January 29, 2009I would not use steel wool. I would use a 3m cleaning pad the green ones. I would think that the steel wool would make them rust.

January 31, 2009I have used steel wool for over 22 years at least on chome exhaust tips, bumpers, & etc., never had a problem *or* had any scratches. But you will definatly need to put some wax/polish on it afterwards to protect it.
