It should buff off. Anodization is just a coating applied using controlled oxidation.

I use Easy Off oven cleaner to remove anodizing from bicycle parts (I restore old bmx bikes) and it works good. It doesn't leave any stains, but I'm generally working with aluminum parts. If you want to try it on stainless trim I would do a test on an inconspicous spot first. Good luck- Pete
