I was just wondering what would be the best product to use to clean the interior doors and dashboard. I have a light scratch in the black plastic on the door and have tried some polish to get rid of it. Didn't work and left a white residue on my door. Any suggestions for cleaning this or getting rid of the scratch? Thanks

When cleaning the interior of my car i usually use armor all detailing finish. leaves a nice shine but the downside is if it isn't wiped off good it can live an almost oily like substance.
Might help with that slight scratch too.
Before going with my opinion though read any others...

+1 on the don't use Armorall.

It also evaporates and deposits a greasy film on your windows. Not good.

It would seem that if you scratched something on the inside, that you have scratched something plastic. Once you have scratched plastic it would seem a lost cause trying to polish that out; that will just put the polish substance into the trench that is the "scratch" on the plastic. This is one of the downfalls of having a plastic interior that we have.

I've been using Vinylex in my other vehicles, but haven't tried it in my mustang yet.

I quit using Armor-All when I sold my 2001 Accord and bought my 2009 Mustang. My slimy window syndrome had gone away completely but I wasn't smart enough to make the connection with the windows, I had just got tired of the general nastiness! You sir, are a genius.

I'm head over heels for results I'm getting with all the Griot's Garage products. Everything works great and is super easy to apply.

No more greasy kid stuff. :laugh:

Interior cleaner by Griots Garage....great stuff leaves no marks

Both of these products are outstanding IMO. I've used both and if I had to choose one over the other it would be Griots...not by much though. Usually, you can find the Meguiars for cheaper at a good sale.

In a pinch--if you can't find anything decent--a good micro fiber dampened with warm water will work in the mean time.

The scratch on plastic is a bit more problematic. There are some good products on the market, but it takes a bit of skill. Especially with the dimpled plastic on these cars. I would suggest taking it to a few good detail guys and asking opinions and price before doing anything that might make it worse. Naturally, that depends on the scratch. Good luck!

Meguiars #40 vinyl/rubber cleaner conditioner. Excellent product my t-birds dash still looks new and it's a 97. Best part it protects and cleans. For light dusting just use megs quick interior detailer and wipe everything down. Both can be had in gallons.

Never, Never, Never use Armor-All. I have seen many horror stories with that stuff over the years. It actually will magnify the sun on your interior and cause cracking on the dash and leather. Not to mention it removes moisture when it dries out. That causes damage as well.
