Cleaning black Dinan exhaust tips

Anyone have a best practice they could share for this? Ive never had black tips before and if you've ever seen the dinan exhaust they are almost dry looking and matte.

What solutions work for you guys

Any grime cutting car wash liquid, then rinse
Don't scrub; I use a MF towel that is no longer suitable for the car paint.

there's your answer. since they will always look "dirty" due to that matte finish you mentioned just a good degreaser and some light agitation will do the trick

The problem with Dinan tips is that only one works per side. After awhile one tip will always look dirtier than the other.
