I just bought a bottle of armor all and it seemed to work well. What do you guys use on your black interior objects?

I don't like armorall because of the greasy finish. I remember reading somewhere that it was also not so great for leather. I use zymol leather cleaner and Meguir's leather protectant. I have a spray bottle with a small amount of all-purpose cleaner diluted in water to clean all of the knobs and trim on the inside.

I use 1Z einszett Cockpit premium and 1Z leather conditioner they both work great. Cockpit premium does not leave a greasy residue behind. Superior Detail Supplies

I use Teflon Liquid Wipes! The wipes are dual action: one side cleans and dust and the other side shines the dash. Its a non-greasy shine that lasts about 2 weeks and its UV protective and the teflon ingredient repels dust and surface marks....It leaves a really nice clean smell too.

I prefer just wiping dowm with some diluted all purpose cleaner, then maybe a quick coat of 303......very lightly i might add.....The nice thing about 303 is it isnt greasy.....But normally i wont use anything on the interior unless it very dried out.....

Armor all is not good for the leather. It is also bad if you ever want or need to do any bodywork to the car that involves painting. I dont care how liberal you use it, it leaves a residue on and in the car. When it is time to paint, there will be "fish-eyes" in the paint...many imperfections. My father owns a body shop and proved this true when he painted my civic about 10 years ago. I used to love armor all. Now I use Zymol leather cleaner, followed by Zymol leather conditioner.
