I have heard cooking in antifreeze for about 10 mins works, never tried it though.

Old plain, non enviro friendly etheleneglycol antifreeze in an old (never eat from it again!) crock pot on low for 8 hrs or so, it will come out perfect.

I would buy a buffing brush and use red metal polisher paste which has iron oxide in it and wax..and would use it on a hand drill.
Aluminium is fairly soft so I'm sure it will work fine.

all I use is mag wheel polish that you would use on car wheels.
Takes all stains off the pipe every time.

I use a dremel with the white buffing wheel, and turtle wax for cars. Shines them right up. Just buff and buff and it only gets shinier everytime. Goodluck

Yes it will discolor it. That's why you need the mothers. Don't do it if you dont have mothers or a real buffer with buffing compound. I just did mine yesterday. It really needed it.
