Put a post on a few weeks ago about how/what you all use to clean the dashboard. After all the advice I got I stumbled across these. Found them in Wilkinsons for £1.50 per pack of 20 wipes. They come in both gloss and matt flavour. I use the gloss type and I must say they are great. I have used it to clean the dash of course, but they are also good for the door trim as well. The trim around the door handle is the same as the dash and that comes up a treat as well. In fact I have used it all over the doors and it very good. The one's I use also have a quiet nice Orange zest smell to them.

Personally I can't stand wipes with a chemical smell (or air fresheners) as it sets my Asthma off so I much prefer Armoral Matt Wipes

It really is only a very mild smell, which you only smell as you are using the wipe. An hour later and there is no smell at all, just a clean car.

Have used these before and they are good for the money! In fact I may buy some tomorrow, my dash could do with a wipe.

I know exactly what you mean. When we moved to this house, we had to throw out all the carpets because the fluids used by the previous owners (who had dogs and were very conscientious) to clean the carpet nearly killed me. It was so bad just before we skipped them that I could just make it up the stairs. We got brand new carpets throughout the house (VERY expensive!) and all is now well.

When I did get an asthma attack, I used to get in the C4 and turn up the fan on the CC - it was a great way to recover!

And to re-inforce my prejudices against Fords, the local Ford dealer also uses the same cleaning agent, so when I visit to pick up the Mrs's F*c*s, I have to speak to them outside - otherwise I just collapse!
