Default Cleaning the inside...

I have a black interior which seems to get dirty pretty easy. The door handle seems to really get dirty fast. Are you having that issue and if so, what do you use to clean it. Also does anyone use seat covers? Have you found any good ones that don't cost a arm and leg? Thank you for your feed back....

Just use a quaility leather & interior cleaner. I use the stuff from Adam's Polishes.

I personally don't like the look of seat covers. If the seats wear out, then so be it. You can always replace the seats 10 years down the line. If you are constantly dirty and want to avoid getting stains on the seats. Buy a cheap one the fits and use it only when you have to.

I have the black leather interior also and don't notice any dirt accumulation all that much.

if you're talking about the plastic use Prima Nero or Aerospace303.

if you're talking about the cloth use Griot's Interior Cleaner.

if you're talking about leather use Griot's LeatherCare Spray (thing rocks!)

On suede, use something that does not contain soap. The Adam's Carpet & Interior Cleaner fits that billet. You do not want to use soap on your interior unless you can power suck it all the way out, which is hard to do without professional equipment.

Would the Adams carpet and upholstery cleaner work good for the inside of the doors? Anyone have experience with that. I need a good cleaner for the doors cloth.

The carpet and upholstery cleaner will work wonders but you need one of those soft brushes they sell to do the job right.

I use Adam's VRT-smells great-on dash and tires-moldings inside and out. ! VRT=vinyl rubber tire
I use Adam's leather cleaner for seats and conditioner for seats. Leather is easy to clean and the stuff is awesome.:

What can you use on the dash so that everytime your knuckles rub on it, it doesn't leave marks. RP

On the dash I've had pretty good result with Adams Interior leather cleaner and a light application of the leather conditioner applied with a microfiber applicator. It leaves it looking "natural" and not shiny or dry. The conditioner leaves just enough moisture so it doesn't leave a mark when you brush up against it. Make sure you use a conditioner after the interior leather cleaner or it will dry out the vinyl and leave a chalky residue. Also, don't use that stuff on anything with lettering like the signal stalks, radio buttons etc.. as it can strip the lettering off. Use only a damp cloth for those.
