What is cleaning polish?

Designed to polish and protect wooden and metal surfaces and furniture, cleaning polishes are usually comprised of oils, waxes, silicones and emulsifiers to remove dust and dirt while buffing the surface to a shine.

Material - while using a polish intended for wood on metal won't necessarily cause damage, it certainly won't give you the finish you're looking for.
