Cars these days contain a lot of plastic pieces both on the interior and the exterior. Both of these areas these are exposed to exposed to a lot of elements that will build up on the surfaces. While most standard All Purposed Cleaners can work for cleaning these areas, they are not always the safest option. Einszett Plastik Reiniger Plastic Deep Cleaner is made specifically for use on plastics on both the interior and exterior of your vehicle. This is great to use on exterior trim before applying a coating such as CarPro DLUX or 22ple VR1 as it provides a nice clean surface for the coating to bond to. It is also great for areas on your interior that are handled quite frequently where oils from your skin will build up such as the steering wheel, turn signal switch and shift knobs.
Here is the product description and directions as provided on the product.

This is an example on a vehicle I worked on recently that was being cleaned up to sell. All of the black trim on the exterior of the vehicle looked weathered and aged due to being exposed to the elements and not being maintained very well. This was after the vehicle was thoroughly washed and dried. The wash process was not very successful at cleaning up the trim. It was obvious a stronger more specialized product would be required as is often the case.
When using Plastic Deep Cleaner, I like to spray it on an All Purpose Microfiber Towel rather than directly onto the surface. I like doing it this way as you do not get over spray all over the surfaces around the area that you are cleaning, however it is perfectly fine to simply spray it on the panel and wipe it that way also. A few sprays on to the towel and you are set to begin cleaning. Very little explanation is needed for this process as you simply begin to scrub/wipe the area that needs cleaned.
As you can see this leaves you with deep and dark looking trim as it would have looked when new. At this point you could apply a trim dressing or coating to further enhance the looks of the trim on the exterior or interior of your vehicle and keep it protected.
