Something that isn't too aggressive - jeweller's rouge and a polishing wheel. Brasso and a duster woud be my favourite.

 

Anything more aggressive will remove the anodising. Aluminium will reform the oxide layer almost instantly though. The anodising is only a few microns thick and is much tougher than the underlying aluminium.

 

The numbers from my light tests are always to be found here.
