I think we tried all those 'solvents/cleaners' mentioned above without any great results... too many applications, too much rubbing, brushing, etc., without removing all the 'sticky' stuff...

Then an Airforums member suggested 'POR-15' cleaner - I got a couple of jugs, diluted it as per their info, and it WORKS GREAT...

Apply with spray bottle - with plenty of ventilation - wipe off the sticky crud with paper towels... Then rinse with plain water...

When done, and the surfaces are dry, apply some acrylic floor polish to seal, as mentioned above...

POR-15 requires no special brushing, scrubbing, etc - apply with a circular rubbing motion is all that's needed, in our 78 Ambassador, that is...

Believe me, nothing works as great as the POR-15 - it's not caustic, but you'll need plenty of ventilation so the fumes don't get to you...

The easiest and cheapest cleaner is odorless mineral spirits.

for sticky plasticizer on walls use Goof Off and rotary brush

I have been around the block on this in Mexico where it's not easy to find the toxic cleaners. The best I've done so far is to use Goof Off and a medium grade rotary brush on my drill. And thanks so much for your comment here, dwightdi, it's much more than just cooking oil or tobacco stains, it's an intrinsic feature of the plastic and it doesn't get gone easily!
