    Is ordinary household glass cleaner/polish OK, or might the plastic be attacked/scratched by certain glass cleaners/polishes???

    Not sure what you are intending to use, but I use a very light cutting car polish via machine. Lime prime is my choice of weapon on them at the moment. Previously used Menzerna IP for a little added cut.

    What are you trying to achieve chap?

    I'm trying to achieve clean headlamps and rear light clusters, without damaging them.

    Is normal washing with car shampoo and a soft lambswool wash mitt not doing the job then? If this is the case, a light chemical polish like Werkstat Prime Strong or Lime Prime as suggested above will do the trick nicely. Household products would probably work okay too, but no guarantees. A light chemical polish would have many uses on your car, so could be used extensively to make a puchase worthwhile and cost effective. :sm4:
