What do you use to clean CF trim?

Just wondering, my CF looks clean except in certain lighting when you can see it's not.

What i do for the whole interior i just have a damp cloth and a dry cloth. Just wipe everything with the wet one to clean then dry with the dry one. It works very good

are you talking the cf trim or the carbon leather trim, i would imagine with the carbon leather some leather cleaner and a leather protector would be best.

I also use a clean damp cloth then dry it off. Thats it. No cleaner or anything. It's the same thing I use on the whole interior. I hate shiny armor oil grease on everything.
