    I thought 14 was only for clear plastic though? Can it be used on the dash board for example?

    It states on the bottle not for use on vinyl or porous surfaces.

    Both 303 and the 1z products work very well. How dirty are the plastics you are trying to clean? If its just a wipedown, either of the 2 mentioned earlier will work well, as will a few others out there. 303 can usually be found locally too fwiw.

    The best stuff ive ever used as a finish on the plastics is Blue Corrals interior cream. Got some from my girlfriend when she worked at the car wash. The only problem is that you can only buy it in bulk, so thats no good.

    ^^^I've been wanting to try Nero for a while now, I think I can get some locally. Your link doesn't work by the way. I'd really like to see what it looks like.

    I like Nero because its water based not petroleum based so it wont crack or dry out your plastic,vinyl or rubber and has UV ray protection also. The nero isnt greasy either and leaves a matte finish with maybe a tiny bit of shine-like a new car look. It also leaves the car smelling excellent-not an overbearing scent or perfume smell. I am hooked on it.

    I use Ice liquid polish, it works really well, and leaves a natural shine to the plastic and also does not attract dust

    Meguiar's interior cleaner wipes. It leaves no shine which is what I like.

    I really like the new optimum protectant plus on the dash. Also finishes w/ a matte finish.
