    I use walnut oil. In fact I just did mine today. Did a tester a couple of weeks ago to see if it just masked the white stain but it didnt come back even with a good wash, so today went round the hole car.

    Sun Tan Lotion. DO NOT get sun tan lotion on the plastic trim by the consol where the gear stick is. It WILL remove the surface layer of the plastic. We had a member who had sun tan lotion on his legs and they touched the area by the centre consol, and the covering peeled off, so do be carefull if you use you motor if you have sun tan lotion/cream on!!.
