Oven cleaner wil work.. But if you want a super clean job with less chance of turning the parts black, and less health risks use this

get some drano crystals.. not regular drano.. it has to be the salt type crystals..
put the parts in Super hot water.. then put in about a tablespoon of the crystals.. it will have an alkaselzer type reaction.. it takes the color off showing the bare metal in its original color.. I have had to do alot less polishing as well since starting this method.. Ive been told anodising companies use a cheical similar to the drano..

wear gloves with either oven cleaner or drano.. both will burn your skin

Default Use Greased Lightning

Greased Lightning is the easiest and best way to take the Anno off anything aluminum.

Pour the GL in a plastic butter dish.
Put in your part.
Wait 60 min.
Pull out part and clean up with Mothers Metal Polish.
Dump the GL down the sink.

It's that easy and it's environmentaly friendly....no fumes, no fuss.
