Default cleaning outriggers

I have taken the outriggers off the boat for the winter. I have removed all the stay wires and spreader bars and have everything broken down for easy storage and cleaning.

Any suggestions for cleaning up the aluminum and the wires? What wax or finish coat is good for these items?

After each trip I rinse them with fresh water and let them dry. Then I squirt CorrosionX on a rag and wipe them down. They are seven years old and still look like new.

Try Shelia Shine. If you can find it really works pretty good. If it really dirty or pitted try Woody wax as stated above.
