    Exclamation Nasty Milky Stain HOW DO I GET IT OFF!!!

    Ok so i just got done cleaning my rims and was onto detail the engine compartment, and when i popped the hood to my horror i have a milky looking stain all over the plastic on top of the radiator and on the hard plastic intake elbow and manifold. Now both pieces are hard black plastic. It looks like someone sprayed rim cleaner on it! I dont use wheel products under my hood so one im confused how it got there. But what i wanna know is if theres anyway i can get it off? Ive already used both types Gunk engine cleaner and degreaser and a few others that i cant remember of the top of my head. But my question now is CAN I GET IT OFF? AND HOW? HELP!!!

    Re: Nasty Milky Stain HOW DO I GET IT OFF!!!

    First off, to MOL!

    Second, DON'T PANIC! Have you tried applying a dressing to the affected areas? You might try a few applications of Supreme Shine, Natural Shine, or M40 Vinyl & Rubber Conditioner and see if that takes care of the problem. What kinds of degreaser did you use? Did you happen to use Simple Green by any chance? Because Simple Green will stain certain materials. Not sure what to tell you beyond that. Welcome to the forum!

    If gunk didn't work,then it's not oil contamination.

    There's still no pic.(incase you think there is).

    It sounds like something is encrusted on your plastic parts.If we could see,it would help a lot.
