mistake while cleaning

I made a rookie mistake and messed up the slide a little bit.
I was soaking all of the disassembled slide parts in super soapy solution of dawn and water.
The problem is, I did the soaking an an aluminum pan.
There was some sort of chemical reaction between the pan and slide.
I'm not sure if some of the aluminum bonded with the slide, or if the finish of the slide was eaten away.
The spots are not huge, but you can certainly see them.

I coated the slide with clp and let is set for 24 hours and tried to rub the spots off to no avail. I did not get clp in any cavity though.

Any suggestions, or am I just gonna have to live with it?

Thanks.

Ok, I was not going to tell anybody, but now that you let the cat out of the bag........
EVERYTHING YOU READ ON THE WEB, IS NOT ALWAYS TRUE!

I have no idea how the reaction between Dawn, water, aluminum and your Glock, could build up something so toxic that it actually removed the finish? Please, by all means.... post a pic..... This way we can use it as a visual aid or scare tactic to frighten other new Glock owners and save them from the same fate.

Here is the pan and slide.
Thought I was kidding, didn't you?
And, I did not read anything about placing or not placing the parts in an aluminum dish. That was the only dish I had that was just the right size for the job

Notice the sides of the pan. That is the liquid level. Above that line is the original color of the pan.

This pic gives a slightly better indication of the color of the pan.

The finish on your slide looks like Ceracoat, not black oxide. If it were black oxide, a light coat of oil would suffice however in this case it simply will not help.
