This wiki has been updated 4 times since it was first published in November of 2018. A highly polished metal can be gorgeous and eye-catching, but allow that same material to become dull and grimy and you've got an eyesore on your hands. Don't worry, any one of these aluminum cleaners will bring back the luster to your car, RV, boat, or household items, making them shine like new again. Just remember that these are chemicals, after all, so you should treat them with caution. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

December 06, 2018:

Selected options that work on wheels and rims (CarGuys Premium, Eagle One PVD & Aluminum Bundle), boats (3M Marine Restorer & Polish), and general household items (Simichrome All Metal Tube, Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish), since aluminum surfaces are found in many places. Omitted popular Brillo choices; their power-to-price ratio doesn't currently make the cut.
