Good Questions: How to Clean an Emalox Bowl?

Dear AT,

I purchased the cutest little bowl at an estate sale. I'm about 99% sure it's Emalox aluminum.

The bowl was very dirty when I took it home, so I washed it with a soft sponge, regular dish soap and water. Oops. Now it looks dull and scummy and buffing doesn't seem to be making much difference. . .

. . .Does anyone know how to properly clean this sort of thing to make it nice and shiny? Have I completely ruined it already? I'm afraid to try other things (vinegar, stainless cleaner, Goo-Gone, etc...), but also don't want to just leave as is.

Thanks!

Lise
