Exhaust Cleaner?

The other day I washing my baby (Truck) and I noticed that there was a lot of that black dried on slug in my exhaust pipe. So I simply tried to wash it out but that was a mistake because I stained my wash glove. It's a stainless steel exhaust so I don't think I could stain it if I put some comet cleaner on it but I really don't feel like taking a chance and messing it up.

So what do you guys use to clean all of that black **** out of your pipes?

Wheel cleaner will melt it off. Gets black as soon as you drive it again. At least mine does.

stainless steel means that there is nickel blended with the steel. this means it wont rust.... its not 100% stainless. as long as that it doesn't have a finish you will be fine. seafoam, WD40, acetone will take it off

Cool. I should have thought to use WD40 in the first place. Thanks.
