    Pour water into a bucket, add mild detergent to the water, and mix. Moisten a soft cloth with the mixture, and wipe the plastic. Rinse the cloth as needed to avoid spreading the dirt.

  2. Apply the kitchen cleaner

    Spray the plastic with kitchen cleaner, and scrub off the remaining dirt with a sponge. Use moderate pressure when scrubbing to avoid scratching the plastic surface. If the plastic surface is rough, scrub off the dirt with a nylon brush using a circular motion.

  3. Rinse the plastic

    Wipe the plastic with a soft cloth to remove the cleaner. Dampen another soft cloth with water, and wipe away any cleaner remnants.

  4. Dry and buff the plastic

    Wipe the plastic dry with a soft cloth, and buff the surface with a paper towel to make the plastic shiny. If needed, spray the plastic with mild glass cleaner to remove any traces of cleaner, and wipe the plastic dry with a soft cloth.
