2012 Interior Detailing

Out of curiosity, what do you guys wash the interior of your Foci with? With that soft plastic material I'm not sure if I should use off the shelf Armor All or just warm water.

Thanks in advance. :)

I find armor all or any interior polish leaves a very noticeable residue.
I'd suggest just some water.

This is the only thing you will ever need for your interiour plastics. No residue, UV protection, non-greasy. Will also work on underhood plastics leaving them with a nice sheen but not wet-look.

Thank you all for your responses.

I live in Canada. Where in the US is the cheapest to buy that stuff?

Nevermind, just researched and found out that Autoglym (which they sell in Canada at CanadianTire) sells something very similar.

Cabelas has it. As would Outdoor World. Anywhere that sells boat supplies.
