Brake dust on polish wheels



What's the best product for cleaning brake dust off the rims? and I am talking about brake dust that has been left on the wheels for very very long , so it's more like it has been baked into the lips.

I am trying blue magic, but it doesn't seem to help. What tool should I be using? Brush? Sponge?
