That will clean it but do nothing to make it shine. I use FLITZ metal polish. It will bring it back to new

The OP said; "aluminum non polished running boards". If they are non-polished, they aren't supposed to shine.

Try visiting a local auto detailing shop. Most of them use a acid base, spray-on alum. cleaner. Works like magic. They'd more than likely sell you a small amount or at least recommend a vendor to purchase it from. Be careful using it, follow directions and warnings. Don
