Vinyl, Plastic and rubber surfaces inside your vehicle need regular cleaning and protection to keep them in their factory-new condition. For the best results, use a low-gloss vinyl and rubber protectant on the dash, door panels, and interior trim. Application of car vinyl cleaner should be fairly straightforward when following the directions on the product container. Spray or spread the vinyl protectant of your choice, such as Armor All. Many products require you to apply the cleaner, allow it to dry, and then wipe off with a soft, clean cloth. You may also have purchased a spray on protectant and vinyl shine product that can be left on for a shine to finish the job.
