Inside cleaning...

What are some good products for inside cleaning. I need something good for leather and the dash that won't leave any greasy residue

Yeah Meguiar's is great. I'd be interested in knowing what people recommend for cleaning leather. I have some newsprint that wore off a newspaper onto my passenger seat that I haven't been able to get rid of for some time.

For plastics, I just use water with a bit of rubbing alcohol. I hate interior cleaners, I haven't used one that doesn't leave a residue behind.

Try a Magic Eraser and then follow up with Meguiar's Leather Cleaner & Conditioner.
