Another vote for Griots Interior Cleaner - great product :)

Please... anything but things like armour-all that typically contain silicones etc.

Just wondering if this is your 1st car?

I use, with great success, Vinylex (Lexol product for vinyl; I also use their leather treatment/cleaner).

Don't know if Armorall changed formulations, but it is NOT recommended in orig formulation.

Yeah, I use the wipes, not that original spray on that is all sticky gummy weird. Never liked that original spray formulation.
Unless someone has a bottle dating 2007 or prior, they are all of the new formulation with enhanced UVA & UVB protections

I use the wipes as well, even on the plastic louvered parts and everything looks brand new

I used the ArmorAll wipes and had to clean the film off my window interior every morning.

My detailer recommended 1 part Woolite to 10 parts water. Says he's been using it for years because it's gentle, cheap and works well. I just tried it the other day and it seemed to do OK.

I don't have the issue, but I'm curious, if you do get the fogging of the window, whats the best treatment for removal/prevention?

Removal: clean the window.
Prevention: don't use products that cause it.

You may just find that this stuff reduces the hazing/filming problem on the windshield (http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f3/film-residue-interior-front-windshield-39576/index5.html#post1661392)


303 aerospace. I have been using it on multiple cars... MAINLY for exterior plastics/ tops made of NON cloth material. Have you really seen it "seal" the dash from gassing off? Because, due to "clouding" I need to wipe my inner windscreen on a weekly basis... and I have put NOTHING on the dash.

I use meguiar's as well, the quick detailer will clean it and not leave a gloss shine. The other meguiars will leave a gloss shine. I belive both have the UVA protectant inside.
