Cleaning Plastic Crud off Pipes.

To get Plastic crud that has melted onto your pipes, we offer the following suggestions:

For really thick stuff:
    a Canadian penny or other all copper coin.
    a razor blade. (be careful not to nick the chrome!)

For semi-thick stuff:
    copper wool.
    #0000 steel wool. (be careful, steel wool may scratch.)

For just about every kind:
    Turtle Wax Chrome Polish and Rust Remover
    Mother's Chrome Polish

For everyday cleaning of chrome and glass:
    Glass Wax in the Pink Can, Excellent stuff!
