Good Questions: How To Take Care of Aluminum Chairs?

Hello AT,

These GoodForm brushed aluminum chairs were featured in an
AT/Craigslist Scavenger a few weeks back and I scored 4 of them
(yay!!). I absolutely adore them, they match my stainless kitchen
table (not the one shown here - this is from their ad) perfectly. But
-- they are from the 1940s (I've been led to understand) and have seen some wear and use over the years, as they should. I am completely paranoid about scratching or ruining them with abrasive cleaners or chemicals. What do I use?...

There are some small paint drips on two, and some slight yellowing on all four. Any advice would be invaluable!

Love AT, love Scavenger, love Criagslist, love everything.


Dear ScottB,

Our goto nonscratching abrasive is BonAmi. It's really good. Or Janel says to use Orange Glo Power Paste foaming cleanser.

Anyone else?
