I'm guessing oil soaks into the plastic, Armor All would probably work too.

1) I bet it doesn't last
2) Watch out for dogs licking your bumper...

It's getting ready to storm here. I'll check it in the AM to see if the bumper stays...

Yep.

It will work like Armor All but will attract dust a little worse. And it will not last that long. A spray silicon will last longer. But eventually, that goes away too. My rear bumper is treated with Armor All in the photos in my signature. But as you can see in this newer photo, it does not last but a few weeks or less:



Of course, the best solution is to refinish the bumpers with paint. My front bumper turned out pretty nice considering it was kind'a rough. This is roll-on Rustoleum paint followed by several coats of rattle can high gloss clear.

I wouldn't recommend the cooking spray, I had a 72 Mustang I put veg. oil on the padded dash since it was dulling up at the time. Looked good for several months then dulled and cracked any where there was a slight stress. The Sun does as much damage as snow & ice.

I'd rather use Armor All or Turtle Wax Trim Restorer.
