Simulated wood on wood wheel/clean/polish - Suggestions?

Time for a good clean and polish on my 1966 turbo coupe simulated wood on my
wood wheel. I assume it is a plastic material. No sanding needed. Just a good
clean and polish. All suggestions and opinions are appreciated.......

Use 000/0000 steel wool with some plastic polish

Then set in your recliner and watch a baseball game or soccer or ???

and all will be well.

If it has a lot of dried oils from you hands, start with GO-JO then clean that off with a few paper towels.

It is plastic. It won't absorb anything from your hands. Clean it with something like 409. It will then polish up like any plastic.No sanding needed.
