Dumb question.....

1748 5
Almost every time I've washed my Cruze, I've been applying trim dressing to all the black plastics on the exterior. While I've been binge-watching detailing videos, I've noticed how some pro and enthusiasts would apply a dressing or some form of protection to the grille of a vehicle.

My dumb question is, is there anything I should be doing to protect the glossy black plastic on the grille of my Cruze, or should I leave it alone? I'm not sure if the glossy plastic would be suitable for any kind of dressing.

Thanks in advance.

Dressings are meant for plastics and rubbers that are porous and can absorb the product. Usually they have rough texture or matte/flat/satin.

Any plastic that has a glossy finish is sometimes painted or molded that way (with a smooth finish). In that case, apply your favorite wax/sealant/coating.
Thanks for the advice!
