There is an item specifically for plastic, like NOVUS which has three different "grits" that you use to bring back the shine. It doesn't work perfectly but it does work. There are other brands available like MOTHERS plastic polish for headlights etc.

No promises, but you could get a little felt polishing attachment on a Dremel tool (rotary tool) up under there. Maybe the Dremel #422 Felt Polishing Tip. If you're really lucky, just spinning the felt polisher by itself will slowly buff that stain off. If not, you'll need to add a very mild polishing compound. Try baking soda, or toothpaste, or a plastic/plexiglas cleaner/polisher compound on the tiny felt buffer. (Amazon and auto-supply places will have plastic cleaner-polisher compounds like Blue Magic or PlastX or numerous other brands.) But whatever substance you add to the felt to act as an extremely mild abrasive, test it on a scrap of similar plastic first, if you can. Good luck - Report back when you find something that works.

The products that Cleverpaws mentioned (Novus and Mothers) are similar to the two brands I mentioned (Blue Magic and PlastX), and are also good possibilities to try with a rotary-tool felt polishing attachment.
