We are trying to remove years of grime from the aluminum frames of our '76 Trillium. What should we use that isn't too nasty to work with? We are trying baking soda and green scrub pads but it is slow going as the grime has solidified. We are worried about discoloring the aluminum. Thanks for any help or ideas.

Hi: Tara_B... I used a product called "Nev-r-Dull" on all the alum. trim on our former boler. It comes in a can and is avail at Home Building Centers here in Canada and most Hdwr. stores. It is a roll of wadding cloth(Wool) with the cleaner soaked into it!!! Use it till it goes black and rip off another bit. Buff off the alum. with a clean soft cloth and you will sparkle. Doesn't scratch either!!! Also good on S/S as well.

I always use SOS soap pads first , it's the best way to remove the worst of it . You'll be surprised how well it works but you have to rub hard . After that , use Never Dull , it protects and prolongs the shine .

Thank-you for your suggestions. We will start with the SOS pads we picked up today. We really want to be ready for use by the end of the month so we will have to shine them up with the never dull after camping season is done. We just couldn't picture ourselves sleeping next to the grimy windows
