interior detailing?

can anyone tell me a good product to use on the interior of your car? i've been using the water/apc solution and i'm not sure but i feel like it's somehow drying out my interior if that's possible. i'm looking for a cleaner that will bring back the interior of my car to life. thanks!

What type of APC are you using??

There are chemical and detergent based APC's. The later of the two is what you want for inside cleaning.

Perhaps try Einszett Cockpit Premium. Leaves a low-lustre clean looking finish, and new-car smell.

For cleaning I use (diluted) Simple Green and follow up with Armor All on plastics, dubbin on leather and Tyre Gel. OK, I'll never take out Pebble Beach.
