Textured plastic

What's the best way to get this clean. Used a brush and shampoo on the bottom plastics on my mates xc90 but you could still see mud splashes afterwards.
They were pre washed also with power maxed tfr.

APC and a stiff brush should do the trick

They could be permanently stained because of the TFR

Try APC and a magic sponge but be gentle

No that's not the case. You can still see the muddy water splashes. I'll try some apc next time. Cheers. I'd have thought that a scrub with tfr would be similar. It's only used to go to the farm but I wanted it to look it's best before they dirty it again.

Try a shorter bristle brush like a nail brush with the APC.
