Default cleaning pipes

What methods do you all know of to get really baked on dirt off of a pipe? I want my re11 to be pretty and shiny again

there are many ways to clean a dirty pipe... but the most popular way here is boiling some radiator coolant in a crock pot and let the pipe simmer in it... works well with chrome polished pipe, not too sure about anodized pipe though...
