So, we use a La Marzocco Linea 2 group semi-automatic espresso machine, and we're trying to work out the best way to keep it looking polished. Currently, I wipe it with a damp cloth, and go back over it with a dry cloth.. this keeps it clean, but not neccessarily shiny. I've used metal/silver polish on machines I've worked on in the past, but we're wondering if anyone has any other suggestions??
I use the method Phoebe just mentioned. I also just read about using a slight bit of lemon juice on the cloth as well. I have yet to try it myself. I have the same machine and it's tough to keep it looking bright. I suppose you'll have to use something stronger if there is build up anywhere on the outside of the machine.
Microfiber —the thicker, towel type— and steam. I use one of the cloths supplied with one of our LCD TVs afterward to give the chrome a nice shine —which, I suppose, is just an extra fine microfiber cloth.
