rod cleaning

No not reels, what do folks clean their rods with? Fly rods, trolling rods, spin rods, whatever...

I have been using plain old pledge on my rods with glassy coatings, and have always assumed I am not damaging the coating with the polishing chemicals--it tends to leave a little waxy finish that I figured was probably good. I am a little more apprehensive on rods with that plain graphite finish, like some fly rods or some of the loomis/st. Croix spinners. Any thoughts? Reel seats and guides all get Boeshield blasts, which also usually tends to get on the rods as well...I assume to no detriment?

Jeff
