You need only a drop or 2 of dish washing detergent . I wash my bodies in the bathroom sink. Do not use hot water or a hair drier. You will be amazed at how quickly a styrene or resin body can warp! Just let it air dry. Patience, patience, patience!
I've used all sorts of automotive wax, but be careful, wax that is too abrasive can harm your finish. Try furniture wax in the spray bottle. Spray it on a soft cloth and polish.
