Question Aluminum trim cleaning/maintenance

OK I found the threads about the trim scratching easily, but what are you all using for maintenance or cleaning the aluminum trim?

TIA.

Yup. I used the same process for the wood trim in my E46 for 4 years. One exception, I used a cloth towel. MF has zero lint, always a plus.
