Hi all,
Just wondering what everone uses/recommends, mostly for new cars. I prefer Armorall, but there might be a MUCH better option for a new car?? I have heard that Armorall actually causes problems when used over the lifetime of a vehicle.

Thanks in advance.

Hey, thats good to know. I like how the dash looks now, and I don't want to armorall it, because I don't want the possibility of it cracking. I'll have to think about the Croftgate stuff.

Thanks bizzybear

i used to use turtle wax interior dash cleaner blah blah. Anyway, it worked amazingly for my prelude. But on the crz's ..new funky interior material, it's awful. It's so streaky. So i stopped using it right away. Any suggestions from auto zone or something and not some fancy thing I gotta get online.

interior cleaners and protectants with Silicone are supposedly bad in the longrun. The vinyl surfaces inside my CRX haven't cracked and that's all I've ever used (armor all); however, I also was told that the combination of Silicone-containing products, along with excessive UV Ray exposure, is what causes cracking in the longrun. I have always garaged the car and we only have 3 months of strong UV Rays here in Ohio, so that may be the reason I've had good luck.

If you want to be on the safe side, use Griot's products (no silicone). They're expensive but at least you know you're using something that's really good. Also, on leather, I HIGHLY recommend Lexol Cleaner and Conditioner. I love that stuff

I use dihydrogen monoxide. But you have to be careful because it's colorless, odorless, and one teaspoon of it can cause asphyxiation.

Dihydrogen monoxide:

is called "hydroxyl acid", the substance is the major component of acid rain.
contributes to the "greenhouse effect".
may cause severe burns.
is fatal if inhaled.
contributes to the erosion of our natural landscape.
accelerates corrosion and rusting of many metals.
may cause electrical failures and decreased effectiveness of automobile brakes.
has been found in excised tumors of terminal cancer patients.

Despite the danger, dihydrogen monoxide is often used:
as an industrial solvent and coolant.
in nuclear power plants.
in the production of Styrofoam.
as a fire retardant.
in many forms of cruel animal research.
in the distribution of pesticides. Even after washing, produce remains contaminated by this chemical.
as an additive in certain "junk-foods" and other food products.

well the interior is not like a smooth leathery feel in lets say my previous prelude or an s2000. Its like a rougher surface that just seems to absored the stuff like a sponge. It streaked the shit out of it. I'm like..wtf...I hope the streaks go away. *lol* But I want to maintain a nice glossy shine. I like the turtle wax interior, because it was super glossy, but wasnt sticky or limy or smelly.

Yeah... I think.. I will not.. use that product.
Please use my product it will kill you but your car sure will look nice:p

We get a lot of UV here so I need to be careful with what I use. I did not realize that armoral could do that, but come to think about it that might be why my steering wheel looks like shit:angry:
