    Non toxic aluminum cleaner?

    I am looking to clean up my parents horse trailer. Not looking for a show-car finish i just want to find something that may brighten it up a bit. I am thinking some kind of wheel cleaner would do the trick but i know it contains acid which i would like to stay away from. Also needs to be able to go far due to the size of the trailer it self. Any suggestions?

    idea of the size:
    Slightly smaller then this but the sides are all exposed aluminum

    Something like Never Dull may work. It won't requiremuch elbow grease but it will clean them up.
    that's what would work best. If you want something less involved, then try some alumnum wheel cleaner on a spray from your local autopart store.
    Apply, let it dwell for a bit and then use a cheap painter's brush to agitate and then rinse off.
    There are plenty aluminum wheel cleaners to choose from. Read the label and instructions to see what works best for what you're looking for.
    If you can find some kind of aluminum wheel cleaner in a "gel" form (sprayable) I would get that one...

    Make sure you are dealing with bare aluminum before using an aluminum polish or cleaner. Many trailers are coated.

    If it's bare aluminum, a PowerBall and PowerMetal would work great.
