Default Dull and dirty Nickel Plating - Like New Look Again

Best Way to clean and restore a Nickel finish (at least so it look decent) ?

It's really dull and dirty looking. Regular cleaning doesn't help.

Rub with a good grade of toilet paper. Not the cheap stuff as it is too coarse. Not used either.
