You can use the mothers power ball and mothers mag cleaner or go to a truck stop near you (if you have one) and buy some aluminum cleaner.

You will have to polish for sure. The powerball is great. Especially if the hard water has stained them. One you polish them, throw a coat of wax to prevent it from happening again that easy. You can buy the whole kit for 60 bucks.

powerball is amazing, I used it on my diamond plate bedrails (you can imagine the pain of polishing diamondplate by hand)
