cleaning the black plastic

The various black plastic parts (and some parts that are painted black
like windshield wipers, door handles, grillwork, etc.) on cars today
can be a real challenge to keep looking good. Most folks in the know
have given up on Armor All as it has been shown to hasten the
hardening and cracking of vinyl products. I have been using Mother's
"Back to Black" and that is OK, but it it not an agressive cleaner and
doesn't get all the dirt out like hard water staining and over-waxing.
I tried something today that works great.

Start by using Meguiar’s #17 Plastic Cleaner. I have used this stuff
for years for the plastic windshield on the motorcycle, but it works
equally well on black trim. It worked wonders on the black bumper
covers. After that, follow with either the "Back to Black" or
Meguiar’s #10 Plastic Polish which is very similar to the Mother's

These two products are intended for use on clear plastic, but by
natures are gentle and non-scratching and leave a clean, protected

Look for more inforamtion here:
