    I've tried using armor all on the dashboard of my 2011 Tacoma and it always leaves this white, chalky finish. Is it me or is the material different than most other vehicles? It seems very dry. What do y'all suggest for protecting it?

    Thanks.

    I just started using Mother's Protectant...so far the best I've ever tried, (smells good, too).

    Only about $8 and works really well on dash and tonneau alike.

    I've heard good things about this stuff. I may consider trying it when wiping down the dash with a damp microfiber towel no longer works to the full effect.

    I use aerospace 303. Bought it for the tonneau but it works nice on all the inside plastic.

    Boat / Marine shops have 303 too.
