    Wipe it down with water based cleaners only. Oil will make it slick and stuff like brake cleaner will turn it white.

    Just like Glocks and other plastic firearms, just wipe it down with a damp soft cloth. If really dirty just use a mild detergent on a damp cloth.

    If its a typical fiberglass stock just clean it with mild detergent and dry completely. If you get scratch's or cuts that go through the surface they can be repaired with epoxy resin or epoxy adhesive.

    Modern plastic stocks are quite resistant to water and detergent/soap.
    Older nylon stocks would literally absorb moisture from the air, let alone wet cloth.

    Toss it in the trash and get a B&C Medalist stock.

    Frog lube, does a body good.

    Actually I'm in the detergent soft damp cloth camp.

    I'd use a mild detergent & damp cloth to get it clean. But, I would also dampen a small rag with EEzox and wipe it down.
    Let it evaporate overnight and give another wipedown with a dry clean cloth. Next time it will be much easier to cleanup.

    Paint it the color(s) of your choice with rustoleum spraypaint.

    Composite stocks are pretty low maintenance. As others have stated, a clean cloth with some mild cleaner is all you really need. You bought a composite stock over a wood one for low maintenance....that's what its all about!
