recommended cleaning products

Lads, was gonna give the inside of the car a good clean this weekend. I'm thinking specifically dashboard, door cards, around the window frames and so on. There is alot of moss and damp stuff gathered around the windows. So what good for this type of thing? I know there is loads of stuff out there just not sure what to use

Windowlene is actually great for cleaning plastics and rubbers we used it all the time in ibm.

I personally would recommend Meguaiars.

But o remove all the moss an dirt from around the windows and so on you cant beat a proper power wash

You may think I'm joking ..... but I'm not, really

Huggies Pure Baby Wipes Singles 64 - Groceries - Tesco Groceries

Cleans up anything, no smell, no oily residue, great for working on cars.
Once you have the heavy stuff off, then I'm partial to the Sonax Cockpit spray - nice clean interior, not too shiny, smells good.

Get onto CleanCar.ie - Superior Car Care Products man and have a look through their website they have loads of products and are sound to deal with and they deliver all over Ireland.

+1 with the wipes... they also bring up leather in a car brilliantly.. I dread to think what chemcials are in there... BTW Johnson's do a good range too of wipes..

Johnsons Baby Skincare Wipes 64 Pack - Boots


With respect to the green mold/fungus on the window rubber... a SOFT toothbrush works perfectly with regular car wash product, eg TurtleWax etc etc....

I got some autoglym so wil try it. what dio they mean when they say "buff" and also it says not to be used on styeering wheels, pedals, gear sticks etc. i supose i should use the baby wipes on them?
