    Plastic interior cleaner

    I have used Armorall all my life and it works really well but I never liked the greasy feelin it left behind and the shine is a little too shiny for me. Does anyone have any suggestions for a dash/door/interior plastic cleaner that leaves a semigloss look or a less shiny look? Thanks in advance for any help.

    I just ordered this tonight. It's highly regarded, and used by most professional detailers. I've heard great things about it, I've just got to get some

    Ya that's a good idea in theory, but I don't know what really protects and what doesn't. I'm not sure plastic needs any lubricating. I think keeping the sun off will protect the best. Tinted windows and use a windshield shade here.

    I agree keeping the sun off is the best way to protect plastic no doubt. I just always thought plastic needed a conditioner of some sort to keep from drying out-that me be in my mind from years of armorall use.
