Resin is a plastic, and can be cleaned like the
"acrylic" in the following excellent excerpt from
the Ridout Plastic website.
"Never use a dry cloth or your hand to clean your
acrylic! This rubs the dirt and dust INTO the
acrylic as much as it rubs it OFF. First, blow the
dust or dirt off, or use water and a soft cloth to
float the dirt off. Then use a recommended cleaner
to complete the job. Note: a mild solution of dish
detergent and warm water takes off stubborn dirt
easily without harming the acrylic if you've run
out of Novus #1 or Brillianize."
More info can be found
For my newer dot
series with the matte finish, I've been using Aerospace 303 Protectorant as a finish.
It's formulated specifically for resin, and is widely available in the US and Canada in auto supply stores (ala Schucks).
Occasionally dust the surface, and reapply
303, whenever the surface loses its luster.
