I think I have seen it at my local hardware store. Oven cleaner not a good idea.

I use wd40 and cheesecloth.

Are you asking me? NEVR-DULL is $5-$10... but a can will last YEARS! It's like a cotton wadding stuff. You can even use it, put it back in the can and re-use it.

Any good auto parts store will carry it.

Nah... but after I shave my head, I use it on my scalp. It blinds people on the drivers stand.

I use orange sented furniture polish and cheese cloth. Cleans well and nothing sticks to it when your done. I spray everything down on the car with it and blow it off with air.
