Copious amounts of Jif (or whatever the hell it's called this week) has
worked well for me in the past. Some sort of scouring sponge (rather
than a simple cloth) is probably best as case plastics tend to be
somewhat uneven.

The other approach is of course to find an identical bit of hardware
with a better shell; I've done that before with some more common Acorn
items that I have, before passing the surplus machine that results on to
a good home.
