I vote for Prism Polish. The stuff is amazing and environmentally safe too.

I have quite a bit of aluminum to clean up. On the smaller parts I want to try Miracle cloth to clean it up is this Miracle Polishing And Cleaning Cloth . The original Miracle Cloth which has proven to out clean and polish any other product. the correct product? Looks like $19.95 for 3... web site looks like a infomercial.
Also and most importaintly how long does Collinite 850 last? Will I have to re apply wax every week? month? etc?
Looks like a good price for it here Boat Parts, Marine Engine Parts, Boat Accessories and Marine Electronics online
$9 a bottle versus $17 a bottle

I use muriatic acid on things that are old and have been allowed to corrode, and when the only other option would be taking a wire brush on the grinder to them.
The fittings need to be taken off the boat and the acid is pretty strong, so it needs to be handled carefully, but it works quickly and it's possible to end up with a smooth finish, unlike that obtained through brushing. I never use it on aluminum - it turns it black.
With old brass and stainless things that are in really bad condition, it saves a lot of time. Have never taken it on or near the boat, and would not advise it. But if you are working on a really old boat and need to clean something that hasn't been touched for ten or fifteen years, it works quickly. You will still need to polish it, as it comes out of the acid bath looking matte and stained.

You paint your stainless and cleats uh?
Doesn't bright work refer to wood not metals...?

After years of shining bright work in the Navy... I paint every thing. Then I don't have to worry about it being bright or not.

|sailingdog||I've still got the one I used most of last season... I usually buy about six or so at a time, since my friends tend to mooch them.|

|saurav16||Does miracle cloth last a long time? I was just wondering how much I should order; or does it get used up on like a few cleats?|

|sailingdog||CorrosionX will leave a nasty waxy sticky surface behind... so if you don't have to touch the metal at all, and don't mind it collecting bugs and dirt... go for it... but for things like cleats, cockpit railings, lifeline stanchions and other hardware you have to use, it isn't so useful.|
