sound bar cleaning

Hey I've got what looks to be salt deposits on my sound bar . Doubt its salt because I don't live near ocean but that's what it looks like. Any way to clean it off and make it black again?

I scrubbed mine with a brush and some simple green then turned the hose on it.... YMMV. I have marine grade speakers in mine tho'.

I tried a product called back to black and it worked pretty good. Hopefully it doesn't fade in a week. Then ill try those products

Armor-all should not be used on anything you want to last!! Any products containing petroleum or silicone should not be used on any parts that are permanent. i guess its ok for tires, a wear item that gets replaced periodically. But for dashboards, seats, weatherstip, fabric ect..... its a big NO. it will prematurely age and break these things down.

I drive a 1989 GMC truck and have used armorall on the dash since day 1, and it looks brand new today. I will say that less is more but it certainly wont hurt it

dont want to be contrary....but as any detail person will tell you petroleum and silicone based products will eventually break down or discolor rubber, vinyl, cloth. If you haven't experienced it, yet, you are lucky. I personally wont let armorall any where near my car, or any other similarly formulated "protectants" for that matter. Which i find funny they call it a protectant when it is actually hurting more than it helps. There are similar type dressing products that do not have petroleum or silicone in the formula and will not har, expensive to replace "hard" parts.
