What do you use to clean your interior?

I purchased some Armor All and it is leaving streaks on my dashboard. I was wondering, if anyone else could reccomend something else. I have a 2011 Jeep Patriot.

Thanks!

I actually don't use that kind of stuff anymore... I use a California "type" duster and skip the shine...
In my experience, it just attracts dust faster and is harder to clean the next time.

but on the occasion I do use some sort of dressing, I use the non-gloss stuff... last bottle I bought was from Armor-all..

after it's set (starts to look streaky), then I wipe again with a dry lint free towel.

I've used Windex and similar products for years on mine.

I use armor all detailer which is different then regular armor-all it not greasey and is not shiney but gives all those wonderful plastic pieces that brand new look.

@ Unibus "LOL"

I use pledge, windex, and if im going out for a special occasion or on her (my patriots) birthday i use a product like armorall but the non greasy one.

Question: Any tips or products that you use to clean the headliner? I was transporting shovels and it has dirt on it. I heard Stanley steamer will actually come and clean it.

A weak solution of Simple Green and warm water with one of those ShamWow type cloths removes most 'stuff' from the interior for me.

I've used that combo too, at times. It does a good job.
