    I just Armor All on the plastic, it usually doesn't need cleaning.

    For the carpets and seats, I'll use Resolve foam to remove stains.

    If the plastic did need cleaning, Simple Green or a citrus degreaser would probably be a good choice.

    Yep, what ^^ he said. I just have a bucket of straight water handy and rinse as needed. There's no need for cleaners to wipe up dust. I would use simple green if I needed to actually clean off something.

    I use Sunbrella 303 on the fabric and vinyl. It's tops.

    Regular dish soap for most of the plastic bits.

    Thinking that one of those fancy cleaners for flatscreen TVs might be the hot ticket for my instrument bezel. Anyone got a thought or two on that?

    303 products...[some of] them have SPF 40 in them, too. The stuff is awesome.

    Their spray detailer also has SPF 40 in it...so I layer that over my Pinnacle Souveran wax :D

    I don't believe this is true anymore, used to be, but they changed their formula a while back.

    I use a damp, lent free cloth on everything but the glass & cloth. I don't like the smells that any of the "cleaning products" leave. I do eat & drink in my vehicles and regularly carry my dogs (which I also keep clean even though they like to roll in cow shit) and my vehicles stay scent free except when new (the new car smell). I also clean my interior immediately if it gets dirty.

    I just vacuum the cloth and use windex on the glass.

    Not long before I got rid of the 2012 Tacoma, me & a few buds from work went to lunch (I drove) & one of them commented my truck still smelled new on the inside. It was about 2 years old and had around 60,000 miles on it.
