STEP #1: Thoroughly clean interior rubber, plastic & vinyl surfaces with a General-Purpose Cleaner or Interior Cleaner by agitating the cleaning solution with a vinyl and leather brush
PRO TIP: Some dashes are porous and made with water-born dyes. Use cleaner in an inconspicuous spot to check for color fastness.
STEP #2: You can also apply the cleaning solution with detailing brushes and applicators. Do not allow it to dwell for more than one minute or allow the cleaner to dry on the surface.
STEP #3: At this point, hand wipe down all indoor interior panels with exterior/interior waterless cleaning solution and microfiber towel. Make sure to do the door jambs, scuff plate, hinge area, door striker plate, and door latch area.
STEP #4: Infotainment touchscreens are not meant to get wiped down with strong cleaners. Simply spray some distilled water onto a clean microfiber cloth. Do not spray directly onto the screen. Wipe down the screen with the damp microfiber cloth using either side to side, or up and down motions. Do not wipe in a circular motion. For a stronger yet safe clean, use vinegar diluted equally with water. Do not push very hard on the screen or pick at debris with your fingernail. Wipe any moisture away with a clean, dry microfiber cloth.
STEP #5: Ensure all dirt is removed from the folds of the weather stripping on both the door jamb ...
STEP #6: Hand apply a Water-Based Dressing or Aerosol Dressings to all rubber, plastic & vinyl surfaces cleaned (except those areas that shouldn’t be slippery). To control over spray, apply dressing with an applicator pad. For dashes, make sure to use a clean microfiber to wipe off the sheen so that lights does not reflect off dressed surface.
