Grease like substance on the interior

Hi,

When I received my Boxster I noticed that the interior was covered in a 'grease like' substance. What I think happened was either a detailer or the previous owner applied this to all the plastic parts of the interior as a 'finish'. This has left the finish greasy and somewhat sticky. It is hard to show this in a photo.

Has anyone had this experience before ?
What can be done about it ?
I don't think soap and warm water is going to do the trick, any ideas ?

Thanks
Terry

I'd wash with a dilute solution of car soap and water. Dry thoroughly. Finish with Aerospace 303 Protactant. Let the 303 sit for a day. If too shiny, give it one more dry wipe down.

You could also use a dilute solution of Lexol Leather Cleaner (orange bottle) and water, to wash the trim down.

Finish your leather with Zaino Z10.

You may need to wash more than once. Mild products are best. Don't want to be too aggressive. A quality leather cleaning brush will also make the job more efficient and better results:
