Default cleaning aluminum

Hi everyone just joined RJ. What an awsome site. What are you guys using to clean your aluminum intakes and heads while they are in the car?? Mine have the usual dust and junk on them. Thanks

I know it sounds stupid but if no electrics are involved i use aluminum wheel cleaner and rinse with water , brightens it right up.

WD-40 works great! Have been using it with a small wire brush for years.
