    I have a Borla Tip and I can't seem to get it polished up. It's got these damn stains on it. What's the best way to polish stainless steel? Thanks

    Flitz works well, but if you have a West Marine or Boaters World near you Practical Sailor's highest rated product for cleaning stained stainless(???) is "Miracle cloth". I've used a LOT of products on the brightwork on the boat and it does a great job. Be sure to clean off any road tar and other gunk before using any polishing products.

    Some bicycle shops sell a product called quickglo. It works great on the chrome parts of bicycles that have a little bit of surface rust.

    Thanks for the information. I just realized I have stainless steel appliances and I use stainless steel wipes to polish them. It worked great.
