Default Muffler polish?

What do you guys use to clean and polish your exhaust? Mine is kind of getting dirty, I plan on cleaning it this weekend.

I use Mothers Mag and Aluminum polish. After winter, the road salt causes some small rust spots to appear on my Prodrive axleback.
A small amount of rubbing with a rag and Mothers and I'm good to go until next spring. The rest of the time I just use soap and water.

I use Eagle's polish/cleaner that comes in a round can. It's almost like cotton - you pull it off like cotton candy and then scrub away. After that, just use a towel to wipe off the residue. Then you have B-L-I-N-G

Sure will. I'll second the Mothers Mag Polish, it works great on the tips and body of my Stromung dual-tip. I'd guess that any wheel polish would work alright, do it.......a polished muffler looks that much better even compared to a cleaned muffler, you'd be surprised!

Ditto the Mother's. Using it for 4 years on various cars of mine. Works great on my Prodrive. If the muffler/tip is already rusted or scraped up bad it won't fix that but for maintaining a good finish its a great product.

There is stuff in a silver can called Nevr Dull. That rocks. It's sort of a cottony material, I found it at Autozone after someone on clubwrx recommended it.

NEVR-DULL is awesome. once in a while i'll use Blue Magic polish, but sometimes it leaves a slight haze.

my friend also had some commercial foaming cleaner called Twinkle from his dad's business - that stuff OW3ND everything out there. he cant find anymore of it though

Barkeepers Friend on a wet rag works wonders for removing carbon and any nasty deposits from the tips of my Stromung. Follow that up with some mag and aluminium polish and you're golden.
