Carol -
        I had pretty good luck on mine with SimiChrome and lots of elbow grease.
You could try a buffing wheel on a drill or bench grinder.  However, if the
chrome plating has gone thin, you might be seeing the copper undercoating
giving a reddish color.  Probably then you would need to consider a
replating job.
