    Looking for something to use on my interior plastics. PO used armor all and it was terribly greasy. I usually don't use anything on the plastics, but the door panels have some light marks on them that will not be visible with some protectant on them. What products are you guys using that doesn't give that greasy nasty feel?

    I use the Meguiars Interior Detailer Spray. It gives a little bit of a satin look, but isn't greasy at all. I live out in the country and can't stand all the dust that sticks to Armor All, so I tried this and really like it. You just spray it on a microfiber, wipe it on; then wipe off with a clean microfiber (to ensure an even coat). Super easy and I really like the finish/look. Keeps the interior looking clean for a while, too!

    Yes, that natural shine interior protectant works great.

    I found the surf city garage stuff to work quite well, but it smelled horrid. If you were looking to use an air freshener anyways, its nice :)
    [MENTION=10236]Obsessive Detail[/MENTION] can probably chime in with some good suggestions :D

    I use detailers pro total interior cleaner. Followed up by silk shine sprayable dressing from chemical guys. It leaves a subtle matte shine

    Megiuars used to make an interior foam which was pretty much the best stuff I have ever used, it became impossible to find so I switched to the natural shine and simply wasn't impressed

    Detailer friend recommended Einszett Z1 cockpit interior spray which he said he uses regularly on Maseratis, bought a bottle and so far love it

    I use Chemical Guys Blue Guard II. It gives the wet look but doesnt leave a greasy residue that attracts all the dust and crap. I bought a gallon of it like a year ago and still have about half of it left after doing like 6 details and also the upkeep of my Explorer and Mustang. Also works great on tires and engine bays. Smells great too. :D

    Wurth Cockpit Care is by far the best I have ever used. Not greasy at all. It's what we use at work at the OEM level for McLaren.

    Great timing for this post. I was going to make a post about this same thing today. Just wanting to know some better interior cleaners and protectants. ArmorAll is old school and there's much better products out there today. I just have no idea what I'm looking for on the shelf.

    Blue Guard II is an oil based dressing which is going to leave a residue unless you buff it off really well. It's a great product (I too use it on engine bays and tires) but would not use it inside.

    Here is my current product of choice. They are local to me but you would have to order it. It looks great and has very good longevity.

    The aforementioned Surf City Dash Away is also good. Like Jeremy, I wasn't thrilled with the smell but it dissipates quickly. Another great product is Duragloss Vinyl & Leather Dressing.

    I like the VRP but the Presto and Duragloss last significantly longer. I like VRP on tires and engine bays.

    Yeah for the really dirty stuff. I don't need it for everyday cleaning though.

    Those things are super cool...but I could never justify the expense to myself.

    Optimum Leather Protectant is a great interior product. This works great on leather and all of the vinyl and plastics inside. It leaves a nice clean factory finish and leaves a nice leather scent behind. This is all that I use on my personal vehicles.

    I actually was walking thru Walmart and went to grab some tire shine and saw meguiars natural shine satin finish wipes. Tried them out and were exactly what I was hunting. Leaves a little shine and not very greasy at all.
