If I may make a suggestion, there is a product named Flitz Polish which is very, very good. I've found this to be better than Simichrome. Flitz is originally from Germany and is distributed in the U.S. by a company out of Waterford, Wisconsin. Flitz can be a pain to find sometimes, but it's worth it. I've used it on various classic/antique cars, not to mention numerous Campy parts over the years. Again, this is just my own observation and not trying to put down other methods.

My favorite technique is to use a brass bruss and alternately a toothbrush combined with soft rags. I wrap the rags around the toothbrushes, use simichrome polish and scrub away... Sweat equity!
