I have a limited with painted bumpers and the normal black textured plastic trim. I accidentally put some cleaner-polish on the trim/step and now it looks like it's 15 years old. None of the other plastic trim on the body is significantly faded. I thought of using something like back-2-black or forever black, but I'm wondering if simply getting the residue off might restore most/all of the original appearance (enough to buy me a year or so of not having to apply protectants all the time).
I've heard peanut oil (peanut butter, etc) is effective since it's what's used in many plastic molds and is what the plastic is forumulated to NOT stick due (hence is a good "plastic solvent". I was also considering murphy's oil soap. It cuts most automotive oils/residues better than normal dish soap since I think it's also based on organic oils. Believe it or not I have easier access to the murphy's than to the PB
Any other suggestions (not dyes/protectants, just something to remove the crud that's making it look bad now)?
