How to get white streaks out of aluminum swing arm

I washed my bike the other day and i guess i used too strong of a dilution of super clean and it left streaks on mots of the aluminum parts but the swing arm is the most noticeable. Anyone know the best way to get the streaks out?

Quit wanking on your bike!! jk jk

Hmm, does it feel any different or is it unnoticeable touch-wise? Goof off MIGHT help, but try on a small area first.

Get some aluminum rim polish.. Don't rub it hard or you will polish the swingarm just enough to get the crap off it. T

Believe it or not, Auto Glym "Vinyl and Rubber Care" does a fantastic job on the swingarm and wheels. Just be careful not to get any on your tyres! (use in moderation).
