    Anyone got any tips for removing those scuffs you get on the drivers door and the back of the front seats were shoes often mark the plastic?

    Is there some magic potion out there?

    Either the Autoglym bumper or plastic/rubber cleaner does the job great. Can't remember which one, but its a dark green gel.

    Yes ok, but what do you use to get the scuffs off your interior plastic?

    This stuff is also excellent if you need to get rid of those white polish marks on black plastic. Use it with a bit of sponge rather than a cloth for a good result. I use one of those green square sponges for dishes with the scourer bit on one side. Just make sure you don't use the scourer side! Also brings grubby tyres up a treat too, but without the horrid wet look and lasts for ages.

    This may sound weird but for years ive used furniture polish Yes your standard pledge etc etc
    Ok think about it! it repels dust, cleans....
    For the dash board, radio etc i spray the cloth then give the surface a wipe. When i get scuff's on trim like mark88 i just spray directly then wipe.
    IMO i dont like the "wet" look a lot of these products leave.
    Oh and it doesnt cost anything cause you can nick it from the kitchen and nobody knows?????

    Used to use this on the plastic bumpers of a mk2 golf, and it worked a treat and lasts for a few weeks.
