My Tahoe has those "black" textured door handles/lathes that when you put any type of car cleaner/wax on them, they cannot be cleaned up. There's always some degree of white down into those little pores in the paint that will not come out.

Anyone have any idea what to use to clean these clean these up as they were when new?

do not use waxes that leave a white residue...
the use of a uv protectant placed on the plastic keeps them looking good...

detail brush/tooth brush to remove the now discolored handles with a mild dishwashing soap...
do not use harsh acid cleaners....

I've had good luck with Mother's "Back to Black" with the aforementioned detail brush. Works quite nice on all plastic, and rubber too.
