    I have seen my dealer spray a soft cloth with 409. It did a really good job.
    Lord, please keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth.

    In my research before refurbishing a vintage Singer, I learned about "ProtectAll". The product is a spray application that cleans, polishes, waxes and has UV blockers. After removing the top layer of grime with water and Dawn, I use the ProtectAll on all my sewing machines. The machines become shiny and the surface is so smooth. The product is normally used for cars, RVs, boats and motorcycles. I've used it on my Corian counters and a laminate sewing table.

    Walmart carries it in the automotive section

    Be careful about using some chemical products on the hard plastic/vinyl machines or tables. It will cause brittleness over time. The cleaner made for vinyl and laminate floors is safe. I use Bruce Floor Cleaner bought at Lowe's on my extension table.
