I know armour all looks nice but I hear it turns it white. What is the best cleaner, shiner for the back plastics?

I just used Maguires vinyl rubber dressing. I like it cause they use scotchgaurd and it keeps it looking new and not greasy. even after a hard rain they still look clean and keep there low luster shine. Walmart has the stuff and I believe its on sale for like $4.00 I even did a little research and found out they do not use silicone in that product (which is a good thing).
As far as the white appearing, thats simple, its dirt and build up in the plastic. Use a mild soap and water with a medium to soft brush and scrub them down before applying dressing. The build up of dressing is not a good thing and can make things look bad and to much build up can actually hurt the plastic rubber and vinyl.
After you clean them, take care of the seals by applying the same dressing you use for the boards and take some vasiline and rub it into the seals, Caution, use very very little vasaline. it doesnt take much at all and a dime size amount would be enough to do all the seals. this will not only help them last longer but will also help in case your seals leak. I will repeat this: Use very very little vasaline after you use vinyl rubber protectant.

People have used this for 6 mo+ and they still look like new. Here is a thread on an AV site showing before and after pics..
