What should I use to clean my (plastic) pickguard? It looks dull and smudgy.

Carefully mask it off with masking tape, and use Unipol and elbow grease.
Don't leave the masking tape on for too long, remove immediately you are finished.

I usually search out a bottle of strong old ale, or any ale exceeding say 8% alchohol, carefully lubricate my gullet with the entire contents, and then breathe very closely on the pickguard, in short sharp breaths, before wiping quickly with a cotton based household duster. Both pickguard and myself are always much better afterwards, in that one looks as good as new and the other just thinks he is.

For bookcovers I use Blu-tack. Softened it first with your hands to make it pliable, then using a rolling type of blotting motion, with a little downward pressure, it will 'lift' the grime off.

I emphasize lift because Blu-tack works best by blotting, not rubbing.

Happily, it will even lift price sticker residue, a boon to my existence.

Dear Mr. Beans,

For over a hundred years...

Hydrogen Peroxde has been a standard cleaner for the white ivory keys on a piano keyboard.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Toothpaste is another goodie. Just normal toothpaste.
