    Default Black soot around exaust pipe

    What products can you use to remove the black soot from around the exaust pipe? I don't want the chrome to perish because I can't seem to get it off.

    Regards, TopRod.

    If it's really thick, get some Mr Muscle oven cleaner on it - the foamy stuff. Worked wonders on mine. Rub it in, give it some time to soak then wipe off. Repeat as you need. Should get most of it off then throw some metal polish on it.
