I would not cleam my dash with anything other than a mild soap/water (not detergent) and dty?buff with microfibre cloth.

Pldege and Back to Black type products often turn grey after a while and are difficult to rmove.

When I bought my car which was only 10 months old I asked the dealer not to valet the interior, not knowing what products they would use as I have had this problem in the past, when a dealer valeted the interior which after a couple of monts started to get a grey look about it

Bought a second hand SAAB a few years back from a local dealer where everything was beautifully prepared. Spoke to the guy who did it, after some tips for my other car, and he said he spent half his life trying to get 'product' off dashboards. A duster, and if it's dirty use warm water, and maybe soap and warm water and maybe more than once, his last words were 'but never ever spray any -bleep- stuff on it.

I guess if it's a few years old and faded maybe, but I sold on our Synergie after 18 years and the interior was the best bit and never used any products - just warm wet cloth occasionally.
