Hi peeps can anyone tell me whats best to clean your dashboard with?

I have tried alsorts with no good finish.

Cockpit shine leaves patchy mess and tried gels but just dry in to a white mess.

Thanks VWCR

Autoglym vinyl and rubber cleaner - can be put on and either a) taken
of immediately for a dull satin finish or b) left to soak in and give a
glossier finish with an antistatic effect with little or not greasy
effect.

I have also used servisol foam cleanser or equivalent from maplins for stubbon stains

I hate shine on dashboards, makes them look cheap and dodgy 2nd hand car looking!

All i use on mine is some warm water, a ROUGH sponge and some interior Shampoo (any stuff, halfords own brand is ok).

Scrub the dashboard with it, and then wipe down the bubbles with a damp chamois.

I do this everytime I wash the car, and it keeps the interior looking like factory.

Hi people.

I have the ultimate product for all plastics. Its wicked, leaves everything looking wet, unreal.

I recently ran out and looked everywhere for it but no luck. I have now found the website for this stuff which by the way is called Bryl Beano and comes in a spray tin. Might have to organise a group buy though as they only sell it in boxes of 20.

It is a silicone spray and can be used on plastics,vinyl,chrome,wood and painted surfaces.

Halfords do an interior trim cleaner.

It comes in a blue plastic bottle and in either matt of shine varieties.

The matt one is perfect.

It was initially recommended to me by someone on here.

Use Zymol leather cleaner, the stuff available from halfords. Spray directly on to the dash or cloth and wipe over - it leaves a near perfect, matt, finish. I use it on all the ther other bits too. Works really well on the steering wheel removing that horrible build up you get over time.

Its sugar based though, so don't let it dry otherwise it will spot.

Meguiars quick Interior detailer is the best I've used, leaves the trim with a nice "factory fresh " look [Y]
