Hello,

I am looking for a quick detailer type product for all surfaces inside the car. Something to use between major cleanings. It would be nice if it left behind some protection as well. I have been looking at the Griots Garage product and the Chemical Guys..

Know of something better? Got experience with either?

Thank you for the help.

Griots would be a good choice. Look for something that leaves a matte finish. The less reflection inside the better.

Your choice also depends on your car and what’s inside. Is it mostly plastic or is it soft touch?

I would also recommend checking out the Autogeek and Autopia websites. They have a huge selection of products and brands plus discussion forums as well. Both are owned by PBMG.

Soor no answer here but ...

I uses a washcloth and a small bucket with some shampoo in it.

I have found an old broken snow scraper brush works well for getting crumbs out from around the center console and shifter bezel.

I hate greasy silicone glop. when i picked up my new car - I asked for no tire shine no interior shine.

good luck and make er gleam.

Meguiar's Quick Interior Detailer

I buy it by the gallon and use it exclusively. Leaves all finishes looking new/factory.

Chemical Guys Inner Clean (which I don't like the pineapple scent, but their baby powder scent is a lot better).

Megiuar's Quik Detailer, I hated its scent.

This is going to sound heretical, but I use Meguiar's Leather spray on all my interior surfaces. It works great.

I started this because I wanted something to clear off some dust in a hurry and that was all that was sitting around. I lightly wiped down the dash and instrument cluster with it. I noticed over time it held up longer than most other things, didn't attract dust or lint, and had a nice lustrous matte finish. So I simplified thing and only use that on the inside, and I don't have to have leather spray/plastic spray/etc.

I really like West Coast Customs stuff, only seen it at Walmart. Cleans better than Meguire's and doesn't leave any shine. But it doesn't work on glass or fabric.

Interesting!! So you've had good luck with the leather spray? It doesn't "fog" up the dash cluster lens? Have you used it on an LCD touch screen?
Thanks.

The truth is that a lot of these detailers no matter their intended surface are basically the same. They use varying proportions of similar components. As for touch screens it is best to use a product specific for that. I use a generic lcd screen cleaner with a microfiber cloth. I use that same cleaner for eyeglasses.

This is now my go to interior cleaner. Safe on anything, even LCD screens. ZERO shine which is what I'm after. It also has UV protection built in.

Yup stuff is awesome! But I do hate the smell of it.

But I love it...spray it all over the dash...radio...console. No worries. Easy clean, streak free, no residue, safe on any surface.
