Black shoe marks on exhaust pipe

Does anyone know what will get those shoe marks off the exhaust? The previous owner marked up the left pipe looking for the exhaust....

I always use autosol on my exhausts seems to get everything off and gives a nice shine too.

Of course you don't have to buy it at Halfords, it's available anywhere

if it's the baked on rubber... I heat up the pipes by running the motor and then use oven cleaner and it wipes right off...if it's not baked on just use WD40 and it will come right off

As the exhaust is stainless steel I use 1200 wet and dry on the pipes and then Autosol. I just use Autosol on the mufflers. Keep rubbing and see the shine !
I went to Halfords last week and Autosol is over 6 a tube, I left it there and got it off ebay for about half that.

The best thing I have found to remove stuck/burnt on stuff from the pipes is a "Mr. Clean Magic Eraser" in the cleaning section of your local supermarket. Scrubs that stuff right off and does not scratch.
