Hard water marks on anodized aluminum trim

Anyone know how to get the water stains out of the black anodized aluminum trim that comes with the X5 sport package?? Tried wax and it didn't work. Thank you !!

CLR it. You can find it at most stores in the housecleaning dept. Test in a small area to make sure it doesn't cause any other type of problem.

Test a small area first with half CLR, half water. If that doesn't work, then do 75/25. CLR is strong stuff.
