cleaing plastic/trim???

so i was washing my ever so dirty JK today and i noticed that after it dried, the fender flares/plastictrimwork still had dirt on it... almost like it was stained... now, a little (actually a lot) of elbow grease gets them clean. my question:

what is everyone using on the trimwork/plastic (inside and out) to clean and protect??

and please... do not suggest that i use wax on the trim... lol... funny guy... funny guy.

Back to Black by Mothers works pretty well. Don't use Armor All. it will make the fenders fade.

If that doesn't work, use wax.

I spray my tires with tire shine, then wipe them down with a towel...I then use that towel and go over the bumpers and side steps... works really well.

Should this have been done before the stains, or will it remove stains as well as protect?

To remove the stains:

A little baking soda and water with a stiff bristled scrub brush will work well. Those of us with soft tops have been doing this for years.

Once you get the stains off, use either 303 Protectant or some Back to Black.

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers work great to clean black plastic. I use it to remove wax for one.

It should help cleaning them and definitely protect them.
