Best way clean an Anodized Aluminum case?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have the Phanteks Evolv ATX and I love it, but the aluminum is starting to show fingerprints. I've tried cleaning it with water and weak glass cleaner, but they had little to no effect. Would just regular old aluminum cleaner/polish such as this work?

Thanks,

Simple green works really well, we clean our (anodized aluminum) parts at work with it.

Just the "all purpose". You can find it in local stores usually.
