    um..........

    Is it a gloss finish?

    If it's gloss, a little dishwashing detergent(Palmolive) and warm water mixed in a spray bottle should do the trick! Spray it on and rub!

    Then finish with a good spray polish( Ernie Ball, Planet waves Etc...) and a clean cloth!

    If the finish is still dull, try some Mothers Polishing compound (clear coat, not heavy duty!)

    If it is an oil finish you can use Orange oil or lemon oil.
