Hey everyone,

Now that the weather is starting to clear up in the Northeast, I need to spend some time cleaning my jeep. The PO told me he used those green kitchen pads (the rough side) along with comet/water to clean the salt and gunk off his wheels in the spring. It makes sense since they're not polished aluminum, but before I try, I wanted to see if this sounds right?

I use aluminum foil dipped in water to clean chrome and aluminum. Works great. Its a chemical reaction between the aluminum, water, and buildup and a physical grinding between the two surfaces that works well. Give it a shot. Steel wool also works well, just get the 000 or 0000 type, anything coarser may scratch the finish.

Since my wheels are brushed aluminum (dull silver) with no clear coat, can I use a Brillo pad? They're not shiny even when clean...nor do I want them shiny or polished.
