Back to Black seems to work well.

Meguirs spray on car wax and use a microfiber cloth. Gives the plastics a mirror finish and keeps it easier to clean.

Wax furniture polish does a decent job, but silicone sprays work well. I used to use Motorex protect and shine which was great but have trouble finding it now.
