Just a wipe with a damp cloth, followed by drying off with a couple of sheets of blue roll (or bog roll if I haven't taken any blue roll in with me) if I'm removing my grubby paw prints after doing a tap change or something.

If you live in a hard water area HG Scale Away is good for removing those white limescale deposits that build up over time.

Micro fibre cloth will remove finger marks and any dried on water spots, for any limescale I use "Cillit bang lime and shine" also good for cleaning shower screens.

If you live in a hard water area and get a build up of limescale around the base of the tap (I do) then cillit bang and an old toothbrush will remove it.

Do not be tempted to use a "cream cleaner" for instance Cif. these sorta products can and will leave micro scratches on the chrome making them harder to clean in future.

Pack of 3 micro fibre cloths 99p in home bargains.
