    Have you tried baking soda/vinegar? Just sprinkle baking soda on the piece and cover with vinegar, it will be fizzy. Let set a bit then spri kle more baking soda and use a cloth and some elbow grease. Works great on many pieces. HTH

    Aluminum is a softer metal and the new dishwasher soaps are formulated to address "stuck on foods" so they can pit the softer aluminum and the chemicals etch the surface ... sprinkle baking soda on the item and use 1/2 of a lemon to scrub it with.... rinse really well and dry... try hand washing the aluminum in the future

    Scrub the pots with baking soda paste and rinse with hot water. Baking soda paste is two parts baking soda and one part water.

    Many people remove that type of 'tarnish' by lining a sink, bowl or glass pan with aluminum foil then using hot water & baking soda soak the pieces. The pieces must touch the aluminum foil to make it work. Wishing you the best.
