Anodized Frame Care

Hopefully within the next week or so, I will be the proud owner of a bike (Santa Cruz Blur) with an anodized frame. In an attempt to help with clean-up, and to extend the looks of my other bikes, I've always waxed the paint on the frame. How does one care for an anodized frame? Is there some special treatment/wax specifice to anodized metal???

ThanX!!!!!!

That Santa Cruz will be a sweet ride! My experience with anodized frames is to just keep 'em clean. The finish on my Homegrown factory is still perfect after 3 years, and all I've ever done is hose it off and dry it with a towel.
