What is the best method to remove that ugly black stain that is left by aluminum? The stain is on glazed dinnerware(plate).

That big black ugly stain is probably Aluminum Oxide which is Aluminum's version of rust. Use a damp sponge and baking soda. Rub the spot lightly adding more baking soda as you go. This will take some time, but should remove the stain without harming the plate.

A product named Bon Ami is a better abrasive for glazed surfaces than baking soda.

Both will work and both are inexpensive. Hopefully, the original poster has solved the problem after six years.
