    Is there a way to remove finger oil marks on plastic? I guess i naturally have some oily skin and after a while, i can see some of my plastic panels get a little shinier than others (speicially my radio buttons and A/C buttons)

    My push start is also starting to feel a little oily

    is there a way to dull it out and make it look new again?

    an alcohol swab will take care of it. you just have to be careful because the silkscreen on the buttons can come off with alcohol. or try the woolite/water mix

    Some all purpose cleaner and a clean towel should do the trick also.

    I'd first try a damp microfiber towel before using the above suggestions, often times I find that a damp MF is more than enough to clean at a lot of surfaces.

    yeah, that's a good point. I forget small things like that unless I'm in the job sometimes. Water is almost always the least intrusive product to use.
