Aluminum is a metal silver natural, soft, lightweight and durable, and for this reason it is transformed by the industries to make countless products of small, medium and large. Its structural feature, in some ways makes it similar to silver and as the latter is subject to oxidize easily. This results in the blackening of the surface and require proper treatment in order to be able to return to the natural splendor. Let us see about that how to clean aluminum.

The aluminum can be machined and finished in different ways and its molecular structure does not require particular forms of pickling to be colored with electrolytic baths. If we have the frames in aluminum that have not been lacquered in fire or gold plating bath (anodized) or even the cooking pots particularly blackened, we can intervene in several ways.


As for structures such as windows, the cleaning process should be done only with a preliminary bath of soapy water to decrease the surface after which, with an abrasive sponge soaked in hydrogen peroxide, rubbing and finally with emery cloth thin (triple zero) provision is made ​​for polishing. However, this operation can also be done by brushing with an electric drill on which, you can mount disks of abrasive cloth and bonnets plushiest for the final polishing, helping at this late stage with wax specifications. To avoid that the surfaces of the aluminum frames will blacken again and in a short time, agrees sprinkle final paint brush or Nebuchadnezzar with a compressor. So far we have dealt with the cleaning of aluminum structures particularly large. If we have to clean pots and pans made ​​of aluminum, the procedure is performed using bicarbonate of soda, an abrasive sponge and warm water with white vinegar which is a great flux. After rubbing vigorously with the sponge and baking almost dry to eliminate the black oxide, with the same sponge to clean the pot or pan with water and vinegar to obtain a thorough cleaning and a lot of shine.

Many people use to clean aluminum industrial abrasive pastes and among these, the best is undoubtedly based on potassium, which in addition to being an excellent flux is also a natural product that acts on the molecules of aluminum, penetrating into the pores and cleaning it thoroughly. This type of pasta is best suited to satin surfaces. A good alternative to this pre-packaged cream can be a natural composition made ​​with yellow soap for washing (rich in potassium) and juice, lemon (citric acid) that mixed together with the addition of glycerin as a product thickener give life to the same and effective abrasive paste to thoroughly clean the aluminum.
