Discoloration of plastic moldings

Discoloration of plastic moldings

The exterior plastic molding seems to get stains from road dirt, etc... that just won't come off. It's the molding at the bottom of the door, the bumper, above the wheel wells.

I have spent money trying to clean it professionally, use soap water, vinegar/warm water... with cloth, with toothbrush...

the molding around the car is starting to look discolored in patches.

Any ideas or experience with this?

Will that product work on already damaged vinyl to restore it?

I think it will help a lot.

At delivery I had strained plastic around one wheel well, pretty sure it was wax, could never get fully clean. On on interesting note, I had one of the wheel well trims replaced by a mobile tech at my house that was likely hit in a parking lot and it was only $63 installed.
