The reason that I painted the tank cover wasn't because I couldn't clean it. It cleaned up pretty well. The two primary reasons for painting were to get away from the cheap looking, non-matching refrigerator white and secondly to provide UV protection. It's been my experience that the painted plastic cleans up much easier and the UV protection delays the plastic discoloring and becoming brittle.

Was that the current Black Magic Bleche-Wite or the earlier Westley's Bleche-Wite?

When my cars had white wall tires I would routinely use the Wesley Bleche-White spray with some steel wool to make those tire sidewalls shine.

Had to go look at the bottle. Says black magic new and improved formula. Casita fella, Joe Z turned me on to it for cleaning vinyl. Never tried it on plastic, but worked fabulous on tire cover.
