    First I Vacuum and I mean Vacuum. 30 minutes pretty much non stop and get every last piece of crap and dust out of the car. (I blame Lump!) Then I use APC mixed 10:1 on the seats, carpets and plastics. Then more vaccuming. I also have a few brushes to get things moving in the hard to reach areas.

    I use Poorboys natural dressing on the dash and plastics and the Megs leather cleaner wipes on the steering wheel and gear knob.

    The interior then looks like new.

    I've used a Vax on interiors that are in a mess before the above too. I also tried some Megs Quik interior detailer but it's ****e compared to the Poorboys stuff.

    I keep washing the brush in clean warm water. The worst car I ever done the clean water looked like this at the end of it. I even re-did the interior a few days later and got even more muck out.

    I don't do mine, i pay to have it done every 6 months at a local valeting place. They do a damn good job, much better than i could (they just do the seats and carpets, i do the dash and trim).
    I will be doing it when its been leather re-trimmed though !


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    Sorry mate. Just seen this. I'll get some Pics tomorrow of the missus Astra. It leaves a matt finish and and smells of almonds. The smell goes after a day or two.

    I never used anything on the interior until I started using this but the dash and plastics come up like new so it's something I use every time now.
