Stained Dillon hopper

Hi, just a quick question about removing the powder stains from my Dillon hopper. I was given a Dillon 450 press and accessories last year. It's going great but just trying to make it better. Is there anything I could try to help remove this stain without damaging the plastic ? Cheers gunna.

I use Flitz metal polish for my Lyman 55 Powder Measure. I unscrew the plastic hopper, wrap a face cloth wrapped around a ⅜" rod about a foot long, I tape it to the rod before wrapping it around and stick the end in a cordless drill. Squirt some polish on the cloth. Start off slow then high speed. It buffs the black stain from powder out nice. It comes in a black bottle about 5" high, greenish liquid. It's good for metal, brass, car headlight lenses.
