What do you use to clean inside the car?

Curious, what do you use to clean the inside plastics of the dash, door, and cup holders, plastic etc? I had a honda tech touch my dash with greasy hands.

Meguires interior detailer with clean, quality microfiber towels. Been using it for years on soft/hard plastic, clear plastics and piano black bits. Works great on cloth/headliners too.



For real bad dirt/grime, TuffStuff.

I been using the turtle wax ICE but ready to change it up. It works wonders on all the piano black pieces that 9.5 used everywhere but the lower hard plastic door panels starting to look semi greasy from it. I just ordered a bunch of Chemical Guys stuff but didn't get the interior cleaners yet. I have the leather clean and conditioner kit, leather air freshener, new car air freshener, stripper air freshener(Legit scent captured), and black forest air freshener. Currently using leather scent which that and the conditioner in the leather kit pretty much smells like the Mothers VLR cleaner I was using before.

+1 for Meguiar's interior quik detailer. Found at Walmart and all auto parts store and has no greasy, shiny finish. It just cleans.

Folex for stains on my cloth seats or headliner.

I'm planning on adding 303 (for UV protection and restoration on plastics, vinyl, and leather) and also Lexol (for leather restoring/conditioning) to my interior detailing kit. This should cover all my interior cleaning needs I think.

I use diluted Simple Green to clean "the nasty" off of interior stuff. Then after it's clean I use some type of Meguiar's spray and finish with 303. I hate it when techs or passengers get their greezy mitts all over my car...boyfriend couldn't wait 5 minutes to get home before opening a can of Starbucks Doubleshot and sprayed it all over his side of the dash board the other day... >: |

I use the clothing that ex-girlfriends left behind, the soap from dispensers at the local Shell gas station bathroom, and rain water.

I am moving this epic thread to the proper sub-forum.

Usually a diluted APC like optimum power clean. If it's just a bit of dust, a wipedown with a dampened towel with some rinseless wash solution on it does the trick too.

I hope he cleaned it up, and did a good job.

My favorite is the hand car wash down the street.
