Question Pledge on the interior?

I've never personally tried this but my dad used to use it on the dash, door panels, etc. of his cars and trucks.

Instead of using Armor All, he would wipe down the vinyl, plastic, and rubber interior parts of his vehicles with pledge.

I'm just wondering what everyone thought about this.

I've heard of people using it on the engine after they clean it up, but never inside?

I would use something made for inside the car.

In fact, I use a really good protectant (OPT Protectant Plus, or 303 Aerospace) inside and use ArmorAll on the engine and wheel wells?

LMAO.

Dude I know we don't have wood surfaces, but there are plenty of products (cleaner/polishes) that work great on surfaces other than the one that they're soley advertised for.

Just curious if anyone has actually tried it.

I don't recommend Pledge or Armor All. Try Meguiar's NXT Generation interior cleaner. It works wonders on our odd material having interiors. Doesn't leave a glossy, sticky residue like Armor All and smells great.

I've used the NXT wax and it was ok. Didn't know they had an interior cleaner. I'll have to try it.

The interior cleaner is much better than the wax. I used to use their wax until I discovered P21S

I like 303 Aerospace Protectant.. leaves a semi-gloss finish that's been there for a couple of months now.. a quick wipe with the california dash duster and it's good to go again.

Pledge will be alright. Motorcyclists have been using it for years to clean fairings.

My experience with Stoners is that they usually just want to chill and contemplate life. Sorry, it was coming. I have to agree about our dash. It does not take well to Armor All.

Yeah. I've actually found some of the non-OTC products a tiny bit better, but the NXT interior smells so goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood.

I have been using Pledge in the white can, it's a citrus cleaner, for 6 years. I swear by that stuff, once you try it you will not use anything else

I agree. 303 is a UV protectant and does not get all greasy like some other products. Works great on tires also.

I use the Meguiar's Interior Wipes and they work pretty well. I also like Vinylex. It's great. I've been looking for the NXT interior stuff, but no one carries it around here. Might have to order some Nero too.

Nero or NXT?

Yes I definately have to agree. I always use the Meguiar's Quick Interior Detailer. Doesn't leave any glossy shine or anything, but just a nice clean interior. Not like our plastic would even look glossy. I had a friend buy an 07 EX after I bought mine, and even after I warned her not to use Armor-all (for some reason people think thats the best for interior of cars) she did anyways, and it fooked up the dash on her car, looked messed up for like 3 weeks.
