The only way to keep them clean is to polish them, and polish them, and polish them, or they can be powder coated to match the colour of the vehicle and no more polishing.
There is metal polish available from most 4WD shops.

Brasso With a Scotch Bright Thingo to apply/ Polish and a good soft Rag to remove it is the best way I have found

The Scotch bright Cut’s polishing time by half I think as it reduces the need for a lot of that elbow Grease.

My bar is like 8 Years old and has probably been done 3 times.

bb,
Though I'm pretty happy with the method I've been using (explained in another thread not too long ago), this "purple" stuff has been mentioned quite a few times, & I may just give it a go (if I can ever find any!)....

Would you care to elaborate on the "oxidising agent" you mentioned??
(what is it, & how do you use it etc.??)........ TIA...

Regards, Ed. C.

Buy a steel one as a flock of galahs will break the ally bar.

Spray it black and then the blood of Harold Scuby's beloved pedestrians won't notice so much.
