What, no dawn dish soap. I have used dawn for all knds of cleaning around the house.
My wife used dawn for the dishes. I think that commercial they did of that little duckling
with oil all over it got a lot of people to try it. I wash my hands a lot with it. I have a soap
dispenser on the sink and I keep it filled with dawn. It is antibiotic. Or maybe its antibacterial.
its good stuff. I do not care for hand soap from Bed Bath Beyond.

Al, watch the CRC. Make sure the can says safe for plastic.

Like BrokeCurmudgeon, I use the same stuff for cleaning plastic....

This stuff: Click Here
That 2-26 CRC is plastic safe. It is good for cleaning just about anything not to mention what it was designed for--electrical contact. I have also used Armour All which leaves a nice semi-gloss finish.

I soak mine in the kitchen sink in hot water and Dawn. It doesn't remove all the crud but that's ok by me. I also have the gray rubber roadbed.
