Hey guys what do you clean your interiors meaning the fabrics, the leather and dashboards as well as to make it look brand new and not leave any swirl or other wierd marks? also what do you use to make it smell exceptionally new in the car (and no I don't mean just a New Car Fragrance Air Freshner)?

Thank you in advance,
Marek

i hear 1 part woolite mixed with 10 parts water in a spray bottle makes the best general-purpose interior cleaner. for a leather interior, a good leather cleaner like Zaino should help keep that "new car small" as well. i have leatherette, so not sure what i will use...

A good mild cleaner is Woolite mixed 10/1 water to Woolite...on leather its great and will not leave any residue...for dashes and vinyls you can mix a good all purpose cleaner like 409 the same way, the dilution rate cuts the product so much that it makes it safe for any cleaning even leather....the application is to spray on a towel then wipe the surface to clean

303 aerospace protectant on the dash and other vinyl looks great and has UV protectant. I think it makes the vinyl look and stay new-looking.

i like leatherique for the leather.

Zaino leather cleaner works well on int. surfaces and their "Leather ina Bottle" works and smells good. Also Meguires. Check out the link...
