Cleaning the interior !

I never thought I'd post a message here asking for help on cleaning, but here goes ....

The embossed/textured nature of my 2004 156 interior is proving virtually impossible to clean. The dirt from fingerprints,etc., is getting stuck in the tiny grooves of the pattern and once it's in there nothing seems to get it out. I've tried soap and water obviously, wet clothes, abrasive sponges and it makes zero difference. Around the door handles is particularly bad.

So, exactly how am I supposed to clean the interior of this car

Re: Cleaning the interior !

Soft shoe brush and a damp cloth normally works.

Is it dirt or white residue from cleaning products?

Autoglym or any upholstery foam cleaner will do the trick

Meguiar's APC with a damp cloth is supposed to be ideal for the surface.
