How to remove burnt boot from exhaust

I have a small patch of burnt boot plastic on my exhaust. I first tried kerosene and then nail polish remover, but I noticed that the nail polish remover I had was "non-acetone" (no wonder my toes look like shit!), and neither worked. Any ideas?

Yeah, buff it with a mild abrasive.

The problem is...once you get a clean spot...you'll want to do the whole damn exhaust!

I'll give it a try. The exhaust is only a month old so hopefully it won't make too much of a clean spot.

I just saw an exhaust manufacturer's ad wherein they actually recommend Easy Off overnight oven cleaner for this very situation. Makes perfect sense, dunnit?

Won't they melt I have used a felt buffing wheel and red rouge compound, but I did the entire exhaust can.....now I don't give a fook, because if it has happened once, it will happen again and, truthfully I'd rather be riding than buffing;
