? Clean Pillars?

These flat black pillars around the side windows have like finger prints on them from the dealer. Tried a detail product and it didn't come off. I don't know what cleaner to use on this..just soap or are these like oily type stains??

Also what leather conditioner do you like for the Nevada leather?

Thank you

Having never dealt with flat black paint, I'll assume when I wash the car again that this will come off. Never mind.. I was just surprised this doesn't come off with detail spray like all other paint surfaces.

Having the same issues with the flat black B Pillar. Cannot get those prints off. Now I watch every time I close the door to try and shut it from the door paint, not the pillar.
