    Griott's Garage Interior Cleaner followed by the Griott's Interior Protectant. Yes, the interior protectant is expensive but my bottle has lasted for about 3 years since you don't have to use much and it is low gloss.

    M3Driver,
    As often as you tout Griot products I'd think you'd spell it correctly! ;)
    Mostly good stuff, if not a tad overpriced:

    Vinyl.
    Nailed it in one. :)
    Same here. Low sheen, low dust attraction, 9+ years and the dash looks like new. And there must be a dozen others that work just as well...it's just what I happened to switch to, when my prior favorite became unavailable.

    I also use sunscreens in my window. It not only blocks the sun when it sits there, but the car is cooler as well. I live in S. Texas and the summer sun is relentless.

    OK I did receive my Griot's Interior Protectant this PM so I went right out to the garage and tested it out on my dash. WOW! I didn't realize that my dash was that dirty.

    The stuff is pretty nice to use and leaves a nice finish without the greasy look.

    I'm happy! :)

    I usually clean with either Meguiar's D103 (10:1), or Meguiar's Quick Interior Detailer, then dress/protect with 303.
