Default clean anodized parts?

Anyone have a good way to clean anodized parts like the swim platforms?

Hard to believe that they would be anodized instead of powdercoated. Anodizing fades, while powdercoat does not. I would try using a cleaner wax like Frenzy.

Clean PC just like you would clean any painted surface.

Waxing Frenzy will clean almost anything and is ultra safe, but will take a long time.
If its exhaust residue type grime, then I would try simple green first.
