Actually tire shine cleans plastidip really well. Makes it look like you just put it on. Avie will speak to that too. And Ryan...

I get what you all are saying, that's why I put Black Magic tire shine on the plastidip - I thought it would make it glossy. But when I sprayed it on, within about a minute it melted the plastidip right off.
