I have the best luck with a simple razor blade glass scraper, but I will try the baking soda. For aluminum pot marks, you would need Bon Ami.

i used to use the same method (razor) ended up putting a big ol scratch in it (wasn't paying attention, I got careless) Thats the good thing about Baking soda,its fairly non abrasive, but has just enough "powdery grit" to it to work like Bon Ami if you really need it to. Almost like a super fine polishing compound.
