Best way to do steering wheel?

Hi - What is the best way to maintain the steering wheel?

Light dish soap in water, wipe off, then Aerospace 303, then wipe off?

Some cars can accumulate oils and grease from your hands and overtime I really hate that...

Many thanks.

Same advice. Woolite and water is a great, gentle APC.

Hi Lyon - Thanks again for letting me know.

Can I ask you something else, I dont want to spam up the forum making a new thread...

Basically to clean my dash, is the this the right idea -

1- Use woolite to get ride of grime (clean)
2- Then apply the product like AeroSpace or vinyl conditioner to protect the dash?

Because if you just do step 2 its like putting product over a dirty surface?

I'll use Armorall ... just apply it at the end of the day when I know I am not driving anymore. I just use the basic wipes. Does a good job.
