By the way, do you know what coating used on exhaust pipes? A month ago I used some soldering flux to try to get rid of black dotes all around the pipes. Now there is a small white mark left. Good that I tried it on small dot first.
Not that bad really, I doubt that anyone apart from me will ever notice it.

It's just a natural tarnish...using the same scotch brite pad you can pretty much restore the pipe to it's original luster...just go in the direction around the pipe rather than back and forth...once they get hot and cool they will be the original color again

U can use wd-40 to soften it up...then wid scotch brite u can scrub with soap..and later apply autosol metal polish..to get the shine back .I accidentally dropd microfiber cloth once and its damn frustrating ....few also suggested oven cleaner but din find it...
