Have you been cleaning them with brasso or something similar? If you leave traces of it in the creases it goes white and chalky and is hard to remove.

Yes, it is most likely metal polish. Wash in warm water and WUL, use a small soft paintbrush in the crevices. If very difficult, use meths and paintbrush.

If you insist on using polish, try the cotton wadding. Wash first to remove dirt and grit.
