Apparently adding hair conditioner which contains lanolin to cleaning water leaves a shine with no need to polish! Ha ha, just read that back - sounds like a rubbish commercial!! :rolleyes:

It's very common.. the oils in the peanut butter replace the lost oils in the plastics, only temporary though, and it's cheaper to buy a decent plastic/rubber treatment.

Any recommendations on brand?
Depends on your budget really..

Cheap - You can (seriously) use Groundnut Oil - about £2.50 for a litre in a supermarket.

Average - Autoglym Bumper Gel is about £6.. nice and easy to apply, lets you have matt/gloss depending on application.

High end - 303 Aerospace Protectant is really good.. lasts for ages!

Many thanks for that. The 'valet' done on mine last week just before I collected it, has left spots all over the trim.
