I have been cleaning my XD with hoppes for years. I even use contact cleaner as long as it's safe for plastics and doesn't contain chlorine. I wouldn't soak the frame in either over night or anything but if you put a few drops on a brush and clean the mag well or something and then wipe it down, you'll be fine. Hoppes will not damage polymer.
