If you can get your hands on the mastercraft branded stuff that comes in a can, it works amazing! Came with our x15 when we bought it new, so im assuming the dealer would have it.

Yeah I'll check that out. I'll try that pledge first. Even the cans have the spots on then.

This stuff works awesome. I use it on all my appliances and BBQ, too. It makes getting the bugs off just as easy as Pledge.

I have had a tube of this forever and its getting low-a little goes a long way and i only use it for big cleanups and use soap and water in between.
I think I bought it at Lee Valley tools but they dont have it on there website anymore
I have been careful with aluminum cleaners unless it say specifically for anodized aluminum-have heard (cant confirm either way) that lots of the chrome cleaners have ammonia in them and its hard on the anodizing.
