I hand washed 4 days ago because it was covered in salt.
It was 34 degrees, but it had to get done. Friends & family call my crazy!
Nothing in the dad's garage for the lower panels, so I raided mom's closet.
I sprayed directly on plastic, and used a microfiber to give it a nice sheen.

4 days, ice and rain, and 210 miles later:
Kept the nice sheen
bead water on front and back, but not on the rockers
did not attract dust and dirt (checked before the rain yesterday)

I expected quite the opposite.


Curious if it will be hard to remove & how it compares to other products.

Silly of me... I wanted to snap some pics before the rain so I can show the difference
Treated vs Non-treated
It is the plastic that runs along the entire bottom of vehicle

I would contact the manufacturer of Pledge, and check if it is safe for plastics.

I use Lemon Pledge on my snowmobile, which has plastic everywhere. Even use it on the plastic windshield and it gives it a great shine that doesn't attract dust and snow. It's recommended on the snowmobile forums too, as an alternative to buying high-priced products which do virtually the same thing. I would not hesitate to use it on my Acadia and probably will now that you mention it!! ;D

I'm awaiting response from the manufacturer.
Acadia Forum is much quicker. Thanks!
Great as a cheaper alternative.
Got me thinking....
Snow does not stick to snowmobile, huh
Is it painted with Lacquer/Enamel?
Wonder if I could put a coat on before a snowstorm, the snow should slide right off.

I will post the manufacturer's response once I receive it.

Re: I used Lemon Pledge ... RESPONSE from company

Pledge® is safe to use on many surfaces of a vehicle including; interior dashboards, wheels & rims, chrome & steel trim, and vinyl. We don't recommend to use this product on exterior paint. It is not formulated for weather extremes and we have not tested it on this surface.

I would think it would work on snow shovels to keep the snow from sticking, I have used PAM in the past but the results weren't great on my plastic snow shovel.
