Catherine ended up using the tinfoil and ketchup to clean her stainless steel chairs.
In a photo she posted, the chairs looked brand new, despite having been covered in rust just moments before.
Other recommendations from Mrs Hinch fans included using baking soda, cola, The Pink Stuff paste and a raw potato.
Amanda Anthony said: “Crumple some tinfoil up and rub it on it, definitely works on chrome so worth a go.”
Joanne Feather replied: “Bicarbonate of soda. Make into a paste with a drop of water and coat.
“Leave for two hours and then rub off with a plastic sponge.”
