+1 on cockpit it's pretty the go to interior cleaner and it can be used on all surfaces. I use cg inner clean as well which works great. I've read reviews for both and people say they tend to perform the same

1Z Einszett Cockpit Premium is my second choice. I prefer Adams Total Interior Detailer. Though i still have a new bottle of Ultima Interior Guard Plus and Ultima Interior Shampoo Gel to try. I heard great things about it.

It depends on what you want. IMO gloss is a thing of the past. I would rather have a satin look for my dash, tires, and all plastics.

Good stuff. Used this stuff years ago on my s2000's soft top and with the harsh Hawaiian sun beating down, it works great!

This is what I use. Non-shiny finish with UV protection. Spray onto your applicator first so it doesn't get everywhere or just get the wipes.

yeah, don't spray directly onto surface, do it on an applicator first, great product!

I just vacume the dash and interior trim pieces and use a microfiber towel and water for any stains. On the rare occasion the water and towel doesn't work, I use Meguiars quick detail spray. It works great and doesn't leave any residue.

Do you wipe down with a damp towel before applying the product? or apply product to dry dirty surface and just wipe off?

Keep applying and after a few times, it builds up on the surface. I haven't done it in a while and it still feels and looks incredible.
