    Thumbs up What to use on dash and panels??

    Need a great product to clean dash and door panels. They're just vinyl but have only used protectant and need a deep thorough cleaning before reapplying any more protectant.
    Thanks guys

    Blackfire Interior Cleaner is a fantastic product I've found. Cleans very well, but not apparently using harsh chemicals that you'll have to worry about damage occurring. This one comes with my highest recommendation. Follow up with Blackfire Interior Protectant, another great product as well.

    It's a little expensive but I like the versitale use you have from Ultima Interior Schampo Gel. It cleans it all fabric vinyl leather plastic carpet headliner and it's gentle too. Also don't need to be following up with damp mf towel so you don't leave residue behind. Their Interior Guard Plus is what I use as a protection and this is also very versitale use on different kind of materials.

    Ultima Interior Guard Plus 4 oz., interior protectant, rubber & vinyl protectant, rubber dressing

    If I would have easier access to buy it I would. And it's the Ultima Screen Cleaner & Protector. If you have sensitive gauges and touch screens I would get this.

    There where only Ultima products here LOL. But they are really great and a little goes a long way with them and just works. And when I have seen some strange reactions on some dashboards when you didn't get all of the residue off of the APC. This products for me feels safe to use.

    I use woolite in water with a MF rag, wipe down the panel leaving it wet. Hit it with a light touch of steam and then wipe. The steam emulsifies dirt with ease and el-cheap MF's from wally world are usually grabby enough to pull off the dirt. I'll be posting up pics of an 18yr old MBZ with cream colored interior looking like brand new with this technique. Steam also kills germs and eliminates odors. It's one of my favorite ways to breath new life into things.

    I use McKee’s 37 FAST interior detailer. It’s great to keep things clean. If you’re talking about cars that are dirty and need lots of cleaning power then this is not what you want. It’s just good at keeping things clean.

    Ultima is good like Tony said and I really like Nextzett Plastic Cleaner for a deep clean.

    Ultima Interior Shampoo Gel is a superb interior cleaner. It works well on dash, door panels and seats. This product works really well with a Sonax Textile and Leather brush. For a protectant I use 303, Gyeon Preserve.

    303 Multi-surface cleaner is another good product that is versatile for many materials/surfaces ...
