    Not sure about aluminum pots. Stainless steel pots, baking soda and vinegar warm for 30 seconds let sit then scrub.

    Aluminum has been shown to contribute greatly to the development of Alzheimer's. The more aluminum in your life, the more likely you are to get Alzheimer's. And food cooked in metal always absorbs some of the metal (why anemics are suggested to cook with cast iron), so I agree with getting rid of the pot. At the very least use it as a container to plant non-edible plants outside. Good luck.
