Tip for cleaning interior door panels and dash

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers are amazing on those bumpy surfaces on the door panels of my '95 Disco. I had tried Armor All and course rags but couldn't get the grease, dirt and grit out of those grooves. The Magic Eraser cleaned it right up.

Just thought I'd pass along the tip.

this is great, i'll have to try, i've been using an interior detailer with a tooth brush, works ok, but willing to try something that might yield better results.

Others swear by Vinylex for leatherette, etc., but my credo generally is, "if it looks good, don't screw with it". So a damp cloth generally does it for me. Scuffs on the lower door panels, which show up in an onyx interior, I treat with One Grand Plastic Polish with good results. There's a FAQ about using a shoe polish mixture on scuffs, but I've never bothered to try it. I also keep a small pack of "Swiffer" cloths (in your local supermarket) in the glove box for quick dusting between cleanings. Those things do grab the dust on the dash, etc., and with onyx dust is your enemy. Don't use a synthetic fiber cloth on the plastic covering the instrument cluster; it'll scratch.

Magic Erasers are a detailers secret weapon! Shhhhh.
Be careful to keep them wet while using them. If used on body surfaces, they can dull the clearcoat. They work well for almost everything. But they ARE a minor abrasive - so dont get crazy.

And,
DO NOT USE ArmorAll! It is a silicate/oil mixture that will hasten the deterioration of any vinyl/rubber/plastic in your ride. I have had the unique opportunity to watch a client's son use ArmorAll in his Cherokee for ten years, while I have used the professional lines I have moved between on his Mom's Cherokee. His Cherokee sits in a garage most of the time and the dash looks like its grey, while his Moms is still black (1 year older and 60,000miles less)! He used to bug me about spending too much on my supplies, now he keeps his mouth shut.

Try AutoGlym, CBPro, P21S, or plain warm water with a spot of sunlight detergent. Heck, even MugWires and Mudders is better (and I wouldnt use them on a Ford).
