Minimoog switch restoration /cleaners?

Hi - anyone know of a product that will strip away discoloration on plastic parts, (ie my 74 Mini switches)?

They have a layer of smoke/dirt/paint? thats pretty ugly, seems to have gotten into the first layer of plastic on the blue
mixer swtiches. Wont come off with typical cleaners.

You could try rubbing compound or polishing rouge. Start with the coarse grade and work your way to very fine. Don't use a motorized polisher/buffer unless you're very careful as you could melt the plastic.. Also - be careful not to let the residue fall into the switch.
