Help finding cleaner for aluminum

donna_loomisApril 23, 2009

If ever I get something truly burned on to the inside or outside of my stainless steel or corning ware, oven cleaner does the trick. But my aluminum is another story. It's plain old aluminum, no paint or ceramic on it (I mean reaaaalllly old). When DH burns something onto it I have to use a lot of elbow grease. I came across a website that mentioned a great cleaner for aluminum and now I can't find it again. I searched these forums, but it is not mentioned here either. I seem to remember that it had "Kleen" in the name of it, like "------Kleen". Does this ring a bell with anyone? I think it was a thick liquid or a gel. I appreciate your help.

I use a Brillo of SOS soap pad to clean aluminum.

Do any of these sound familiar?

I had some of those old aluminum pans many many years ago, too, but all got retired quite a while ago.

Here is a link that might be useful: Kleen search

No. I did that search before posting, trust me. It's just gone from my head. I also posted this on the cleaning forum and someone suggested Sokoff. It sounds very much like the "Kleen" one I was looking for, so I ordered some. We'll see how it works. Thanks, all.
