The chrome package is chrome plated plastic. Wiping it with water and a microfiber towel is the best way to keep it clean. You can also use a mild soap that you wash the paint with as well. Don't use anything that has strong chemicals or abrasives.

Any car wax that has Carnauba Wax is your best bet for protection and long life. Meguiar's products are all very good but again, the more Carnauba Wax the better the protection. Use also on your chrome. [^]
