Depending on the color and type of plastic surface, you can wet sand the plastic with 1500-2000 grit sand paper. Sand real lightly, and sand enough to see the stains disappearing from the sanding area. Be sure to keep sand paper level with surface, do not used finger tips, will leave grooves. Now depending on the surface rather semi- or glossy, wipe with a degreaser, that does not contain acetone. Spray plastic surface with a clear coat finish, either semi or glossy. Works great on plastic headlights on vehicles.
