    Default Dashboard marks

    The car has a couple of marks on the dash probably from a Sat Nav being stuck on it. Some of the sticky stuff is stll there. Is there a way of removing the stuff as well as the marks?

    I've tried all the sticky stuff removers but they just made it look worse..........

    Turpentine or white spirit usually works quite well as a solvent for removing the residue left by sticky pads.

    Our you could steal some nail varnish remover from a female relative. Or Acetone, which is what it's based on.

    I would be careful using Acetone. It will melt some plastics.

    I know found out ot my own cost.

    You definitely don't want to put acetone (or nail polish remover - same thing) on the dash, it'll strip the plastic/rubber finish. Try some Isopropyl Alcohol (Isopropanol) as that will shift stick stuff without wrecking the plastic. Or try a bit of AutoGlym intensive tar remover if you have some of that.
