"Long ago and far a way", I spent four years at a boys' reform school on the banks of the Hudson. Most every Saturday morning, we got to enjoy Saturday Morning Inspection of rooms (SAMI), Inspection in Ranks, and Parade in addition to the academic haze of the day... plebe math, chemistry, physics, etc...

In preparation for SAMI, I learned early on to Pledge the floor just inside my door. The Inspecting Officer would burst into the room, slip on the rigged floor, and bust his ass or at least come close to it.

Kind of took him off his game... distracted, he often went elsewhere, looking for others to "slug". (Slang for receipt of Form 2-1 including demerits, punishment tours and/or room confinement.)

... never walked the area!

303 protectant works for most stuff for protecting/shining stuff after cleaning. Wipe it on, gently wipe it off and buff with a microfiber.
You can make an old motorcycle look new with this stuff on cable housings, hoses and plastic parts etc.

The Original Spray Polish is the same stuff as the Honda spray and works as well as plexus if not better for me. I will use this one on the windshield after a day on the road.

Learned to use pledge decades ago for windshields and facemasks and such. Dissolves bug guts nicely. Fills in the wee scratches that create a starburst at night.

It's not perfect though. It's soft and a bit sticky, so whatever you apply it to tends to be dusty by the end of the day. Shows smudges too. And don't get it on your weird colored irridencent sunglasses.

Today, folk use microfiber cloths. We just used our t-shirt.
