"Headlight restorer" is usually very abrasive, so stick with the finer stuff.
That reminds me of the time I de-greased my Fluke with Solvent Flux Remover. The can looked just like the contact cleaner I thought I was using. It melted the buttons and the dial and stuck them to the case.
It's not all the variables I am most concerned with, it's the undiscovered constants.
