    How to clean BMW dashboard?

    Hi!

    I was wondering what product(s) to use and how to clean this 2019 BMW X3 dashboard. It's basically like a matte screen. This is what it looks like right now (sorry, I don't know how to rotate them):

    I'm guessing a microfiber towel with...? Chemical Guys Interior Cleaner? I have no idea.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I would start with a VERY soft MF towel and make it damp with water. I've had other cars which had those plastic screens damaged/etched by cleaners or a strong APC.

    On my 2016 BMW 4-series, I go with a dry or damp MF cloth. If it happens to get something on there I can't get off with the damp towel, I'll add a very small amount of APC to the towel I've wetted with water.

    The plastic used on gage clusters in general (any brand) seems to be really easily scratched and sensitive to chemicals. I always tread lightly when attempting to clean them.

    I like to use the Blackfire Interior Detailer on dashboards. The Blackfire Plex Pro works great on Gauge Clusters. The Ultima Screen Cleaner & Protector is another excellent product for Navigation, LCD & LED screens, Laptops and Monitors.
