interior cleaner

I can't find a good interior cleaner!! I'm looking for one the leaves a semi-gloss finish on the dash. My friend had one that left a semi-gloss finish but it was in a no-name bottle he bought from the car dealer but they don't sell it no more. What do you guy use to clean your dash?

i would find a light all purpose cleaner for the dash (diluted if needed). most of the time i just wipe mine with a clean microfiber/damn microfiber than the best product period to protect and shine the dash is 303 aerospace protectant. it leaves my dash looking good for at least 4 weeks. it has many uses from the dash to all plastic to even a dressing for the tires. i am in the process of doing research to find out if it can safely be used on the "leather" portion of the seats.

Yes, you can safely use it on leather. I've been using it for years on all my cars. If I remember correctly, their website says that it is safe for leather.

Chemical guys makes great products for the dash application and leather/suede application as well. I will get the link for you here in a bit. Stay away from any oil based product due to drying your interior out and stress cracking it.

Awesome stuff, I use it on my IS and all the cars I detail. Be sure to use an all-purpose cleaner (let it dry, too) before you wipe this stuff on - that way 303 has a clean surface to soak into and will last that much longer.

EDIT- didn't realize lilmanx01 posted a similar post... oops

You can always use Woolite (the laundry detergent) diluted 10:1 as an interior cleaner. It is very gentle on your interior and has worked well for me.

work horse. Ever wonder how dealerships get used cars that look like dumpsters, to look like brand new cars again. workhouse aerosol cleaner.

spary this stuff on leather or any surface let it sit for 30 seconds and wipe away with a clean rag. Don't let it sit for longer, and don't let it sit on plastic. ima mechanic. this stuff return my white seats back to white after having auto grease on them. it leaves the car with a new car smell. trust me it is majic, and how professional big time dealerships make their used cars really nice again.
