hi, i have white plastic on my bike that has set in dirt stains that cant be simply wiped off. will "plastic renew" or some other product take it out? or should i just try to sand it? problem with sanding it is that i seem to sand "in" the grit off the paper..anyway,, i cant afford new plastic, mines not scratched, its just got set in stains.

PC Renew is a system that uses sand paper. It should work cause your sanding out the scratches therefore rooming any grooves for dirt to get stuck in. It works but it takes time as there are quite a few steps.

I use an SOS pad with soapy water on my white fork guards, numbers and aluminum frame...It will slighly scratch the plastic but it's not noticeable enough to bother me.

Save the dough of plastic renew products and chemical shines and buy some SOS pads and soapy water.
