care of aluminium cake tins

I have some cake tins I bought from Williams Sonoma a few years back. I believe they are heavy guage aluminium (they are not non stick). Recently, I have noticed that the surface seems to have become "oxidised" (for want of a better description) and a grey residue can be seen when wiping them with a paper towel. I think I may have caused this by putting them in the dishwasher, but I'm not sure. Is there a way I can restore them (maybe by oiling??) - Thanks
