Default Cleaning the Dash

What is the best cleaner to clean the dash of my 05. The car wash cleaned the interior and left streaks on the dash. I searched the site and only found a reference to "Bumper Black" as a plastic cleaner. It seems that I have seen a reference saying that Armorall is not good for this dash. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Jim

I use ArmourAll, looks great (to me). Some folks are put off by a perceived color change.

I just use a swiffer to dust the dash off. For cleaning/disinfecting, I use dettol.

Personally, I'm not fond of any of the protestants like ArmorAll. I dislike the shiny, wet look they leave. Additionally, they tend to attract dust if you don't wipe the dash down completely after applying.

I just take a damp towel and wipe down the dash a few times a year. In between, I use a small sized California Duster that works great for dusting the dash and interior.

I don't get it. But I'm also a member of both Opus Dei and the Priory of Sion, just in case.

Which Sion? The xA, xB, or TC?

Default Dash cleaner

I like to use Lemon Pledge.

Helps to keep dust from sticking and smells nice.

I've used it for years to clean the faring on my motorcycle. Helps to prevent and cover up minute scratches as well.
