best interior cleaning method IMO

ok so I like the new car matte look, not the shiney greasy armorall look. i make sure i wash my hands after eating greasy food so i dont grease up my interior, and i politely ask others to do the same. So when it came to clean my car i invested in several cleaning supplies and all greasy. i tested it on a small spot ofcoarse. i recently used lexol and it sucks. so heres what i have discovered is the BEST!

GOO GONE, and water, and polishing cloth.

YES goo gone de greases the interior giving it the matte look. try it on your hand break, steering wheel and airbag, and u can see how it brings out your stiching and gives it a new car look.

appy goo gone, gently rub and then rub with water a little and polish with non coarse cloth. the water makes sure there is no white residue.

try it.... the only side affect is that the goo gone has a citrus smell but it goes away in a few minutes.

A household cleaning tip....Woolite. Mix it at 5 parts water to 1 part Woolite(3:1 for heavy dirt). Brush with a soft leather brush and wipe dry.

I have used this detailng numerous leather interiors with great results.
