IS250 Dash: How to clean?

Does anyone have experience cleaning the dash of a newer Lexus IS? The dash is of a different material that I'm used to, it is sort of sticky from the factory and the dust/dirt on it is very hard to remove because of the stickiness.

I've used Simple Green (diluted of course) and it is still pretty tough to get off.

Anyone have experience here? Thanks.

What is it your trying to clean off?

That textured material is NOT designed to have a dressing applied to it

Throw that Simple Green in the garbage

Ultima Interior Shampoo will do the trick when used with a soft brush and wiped off with a microfiber.

Dressing? Since when is simple green a dressing? How would you recommend cleaning the dash?

Re: IS250 Dash: How to clean?

don't put simple green on it! You need a gentler cleaner with more elbow grease. The Lexus IS is a real nice interior but it does have lots of different color clash and different textures. Gloss, soft, hard, smooth, tan, dark. Meg's interior cleaner would be good or woolite/water 20:1

Re: IS250 Dash: How to clean?

What is the deal with the dash? I test drove one and almost bought it, but never really paid attention to the dash. Is it covered, plastic, vinyl?

Its a textured material that was devoloped to reduce glare. IMO every car should have this
