If it has thick baked-on dirt/oil/nitro stains; then Easy Off oven cleaner and a scotch brite or light-scrubbing pad works great.

Work FAST and don't let it sit on the pipe any longer than necessary and rinse it well.

So long as its polished; you can use any good metal polish on it and a soft terry cloth or microfiber cloth to shine it back up.

I prefer Mother's Mag/Aluminum polish available at any auto-parts retailer; its fairly cheap as well and works fast and leaves a great finish.

Scotch bright! works great!

the soap helps break down the baked on dirt and the steel wool takes it right off.
