Never liked a shiny dash personally. For a nice satin finish-pledge furniture polish believe it or not!

You can get a matt interior cleaner that doesn't leave your dash like a mirror causing annoying glare when it's sunny! I thinks Halfords sell it!

I only use Sun Of a Gun on my engine bay when ever I get around to cleaning it. Brings it up great.

I us the Dunnes store dash wipes on my Dash and their very good for a quick wipe over. Their in an orange pack. I'll look and see what their called.

Meguires Trim Detailer on dash and all plastics/rubbers!

Turtle Wax shampoo with brush on the seats!

Tough stuff STP. Works wonders on seats and material door cards. :thumbsup:

autoglym all the way
shampoo before you dress [dress only if you want a shine on dash,doorcards etc]
using household cleaning products on our cars may not be a good idea as they are full of salt
water is the cheapest cleaner use it well
any ??? about cleaning/detailing welcome

Water, white vinigar and a little shampoo for foamy effect to bring dirt too the top, Top job.

Autoglym vinyl and rubber care I found absolutely brilliant for the dash, doorcards and all rubber and plastic trim interior and exterior. Brings the rubber up like new and leaves a lasting finish too. I've also heard its great to use in the engine bay so thats next on my list to do.

A good carpet cleaning shampoo for the mats etc, and then I use a leather cleaner for the seats followed by leather cream which nourishes and softens the leather to stop it from ripping.

leather cream which nourishes and softens the leather

would it be better to get cloth seats steam cleaned professionally or is there any cleaner you can buy to do it yourself?

26-03-2009, 15:50
Well i'd say do it yourself if you have a de humidifier, otherwise professionally, it'l only soak downwards, and you dont want that. Wet arse for weeks. Professionally They have a special hoover with a plastic nozzle on the top that will clear up any water in the seats. But too clear right up you need a dehumidifier. :thumbsup:

how much to get the seats done back and front approx? professionally?
