I have used Marine Clean to remove slight oxidation from aluminum (this is the cleaner used to clean parts before painting with POR-15). I use a 3:1 water/cleaner mixture, using very hot water. Place the affected part in the solution for about 20-30 minutes. Use a soft bristle brush (old toothbrush), and scrub it clean. Do NOT leave it overnight in the solution, as it will begin to dissolve it! I also use this cleaner to wash carburetors that have oxidized, it makes them like new again. I recommend wearing rubber gloves, the cleaner is a strong alkaline, and will strip the natural oils from your skin.
