I generally use a damp cloth (dilute auto detergent), followed by a small amount of ArmorAll, again on a damp cloth. I don't spray the ArmorAll directly onto the surface.

There's no magic about cleaning, and generally, you can't clean any surface with a single application of "stuff". ArmorAll contains silicone compounds which are usually regarded as harmless, but you wouldn't necessarily want a polished surface on the top of the dash.

Armor-all can make things slippery plus if you get and on your windows, it will smear the glass with a film that I have never seen removed by any other product. Be careful to spray the product onto a cloth and be careful applying from the cloth.

Heard that Armor all can cause cracks if applied and felt under the sun. Lexol would be safer to use and very effective.

I use Turtle wax 'interior cleaner' from the 'Ice' line of products they have, blue bottle, and it works great, doesn't leave it greasy looking, smells good, and lasts a while ... you can reapply it a week or two later and looks great again. I use it on all the door panels, kick panels, basically anything plastic in the interior and it's done a good job for me.

Another great product is Megs interior quick detailer. Its a 2-1 product, it cleans and protects the surface with out leaving any greasy substance.

I purchased my Kia Soul 2011 NEW from Aloha Kia. In the past year, the textured part of my dash has become gummy/sticky and attracts dust and grime. NO commercial cleaners have been used on my dash. What's causing this, and is there a recall?
