Cleaning all the EXTRAZ

What do you guys use to clean the stereo, dash, interior trim, inner door panels, steering wheel, and ALL of that other interior stuff besides the leather seats?

Zaino Z10 for leather. Aerospace 303 for most of the rest.

Anybody think it's ok to use Adam's detailing spray on the interior? Problem is that i can't stand that gay fruity smell.

I'm using Einszett Cockpit for my Audi now and I like it much better than anything else I've ever used. It provides a natural matte finish instead of a greasy shiney mess like some other stuff.

I don't know if it can be used on leather though. Might have to use a regular leather treatment for those parts.

This is more related to cleaning tools rather than chemicals but Walmart has an excellent brush set from Black Magic that is very inexpensive. I think it runs about $6 and its quite nice.

A picture of it is below. The piece at the top cleans the vents. The one in the middle is a soft horse hair type brush with a rubber thing at the end of it which is excellent for getting the wax/polish in the cracks. The last brush is a bit stronger.

I have spent $$$ on many good products from PS to klass and Maquire, all good and a few bad. I just use the BMW products and leaves a new car smell, does a good job and cost just the same more or less and works just as good. It's all in the time and care you put into it with good products of course.
