Interior plastics

Decided on the Liquid Glass for the exterior. Like the buildup factor. Now for the interior. No leather just cloth and plastic. I'm a big fan of the Armor All low gloss protectant but alas they've stopped making it. Want to treat the dash, etc but don't want the glare in the windshield. What to use??? Is the LG vynil treatment low gloss? What else is out there to fit my needs? BTW this forum rocks. Ric

Meguires Interior Spray detail. Just about everything else available on shelves provides too much gloss.

Armor All is known to dry out plastics. That's why you need to keep adding more and more over time to "moisturize" the plastic or bring back the color. I use Meguiar's Natural Shine Vinyl & Rubber Protectant. Nice, natural low luster shine, uv protectant, that wipes off clean with no greasy effect. Great product imo.

I use 3M Leather and Vinyl Cleaner/Protectant. Low gloss, long lasting and does not cause off-gassing fog on the inside of your windows (like Armor-all and many others do). It also works great on the exterior black trim pieces. Meguiars is a close 2nd (3M actually owns Meguiars). You can get it at NAPA or on-line:

Armor All sucks!!! It dries it out and collects dusts. Little known secreat, @ the M. Benz factory they use Pledge. YUP house hold pledge!!! I have a family worker who used to there and thats what they use. I have used it ever since.
Side note..... the dust cloths you use around the house are GREAT for cleaning the dust off the dash board.

Life is short, live hard!

Thanks for the the answers. What about the Lexol vynil stuff? I've used the Lexol leather treatment for a long time and have been real satisfied with it. After the heads up on Armor All its history.... Ric

How about a damp cloth?

Not sure why one would use anything else.

Old school, damp cloth user here as well. I don't have worry about smearing up the glass with "protectant" overspray. I'm sure Pledge would work good too, I use it on my "good" shoes when my wife says "You're wearing those?". Does a nice, quick job.

I aagree that armor all dries things out. Have used it before and it dry rots anything it is used on. Damp cloth is the way to go.

x3.

I have used pledge on the interior and tires for many years.

A guy i used to work with turned me on to this little secret. They guy was literally crazy about keeping his little toyota pickup clean. He would spray it with meguires spray detail evey night after driving home from work. I never saw a spec of dust on the truck, even in the winter with the salt on the roads.

I agree with APT 303 aerospace protectant has sun block in it- was made for boat seats--read the reviews.

Meguiars and 303 aerospace has got some great reviews, and my friend used to used them both and has been great.

Get it while it's there!
