    Be careful that whatever you use is safe on aluminum. A professional detailer once used a industrial strength degreaser that caused some sort of chemical reaction that turned the block brownish. Turns out it had some type of acid in it that reacted with the aluminum.

    Soapy water to get dirt off the plastic bits and then hit the plastic parts with some non-oil based vinyl, plastic, rubber spray
