I just bought my childhood home from my dad. He did a good job of taking care of the pool and equipment, but left the slide alone. It's lost it's zip factor. I just power washed the dirt off of there and it looks relatively white again. After some reading on the internet, several sources suggested talked about cleaning, so I use 409 to wipe it down, then after dry I followed up with Novus plastic polish. Texture is still not smooth and the slide lacks the zip.
Short of replacing the slide is there anything that can be done to restore the zip? I thought about using a good car wax to buff the surface with but don't know if that will hurt it or not. Wonder about some of that pink 3M car polish? Hmmm
