How do you clean the plastic/rubbery trim on your car?

Iam trying to clean my chin spoiler and grill delete.. and the thing between the hood and windshield... i used to use armoral.. but for some reason it stained it prety bad.. and i have to repeatedly use armoral to keep up the shine with out that fadded look... does anyone have any other products that won't stain the plastic and rubber on exterior trim?

Black Magic will work. Any tire shine or finishing spray should work alright.

Yeh, I use my tire shine to do my chin spoiler, mirrors, and that part.

Mothers, or just clean it back to noraml and keep it clean. I dont like to put lots of things on the black plastic cause when it rains it will run sometimes. (not all the time or all the stuff will do this)

Here's another vote for Back To Black. That is some seriously good stuff, especially when you're working with 15 year old trim.

It won't run if you wipe the excess off after rubbing it in really good.

Re: How do you clean the plastic/rubbery trim on your car?

i use www.dwgint.com for all exterior needs, it simply works better than armoral and that crap and it keeps the trim from fading (mine is still perfect) It doesnt shine, but it doesnt run off in the rain either.

For inside I use regular armoral cuz im to cheap to buy DWG's interior cleaner. Which doesnt shine either but it repels dust and make sit look new, non greezsy.
