Boot marks on pipes?

What can I use to get melted heel marks off my pipes? Tried Goo Gone and it did nothing.

I was told some steel wool, used real lightly then finish with mothers cream.
Your word is bond, did you use rubber cement?

Sticks and stones will break your bones, but I enjoy using them.

No steel wool, Mothers Cleaner poliasher by its self will take it off just keep rubbin, it will come off, I have heal marks and use it. I also have used oven cleaner on aluminum but have not on chrome so I cant reccomend that.

I have used 0000 steelwool with very good results. It doesn't leave any scratch marks on chrome.

I use a Mr. Clean magic eraser, you can get them at the grocery store, I've been told to be careful not to rub right through the chrome, they have worked every time on my bikes.
