    interior Cleaning

    The wood grain plastic in my car feels sticky. I have never used anything other then water on it. Can anyone recommend a cleaner that will do no harm. Thanks

    Seltzer water and a lint free terry clothe followed by 303 Aerospace protectant on another lint free terry clothe

    I always start with water, Seltzer water then any type of cleaner to match what I am cleaning on plastic or fabric.

    I can't find a local supplier of 303. I will resort to the internet.

    I hope your reason for using Pledge is not because you thing the trim is wood. Is Pledge OK for plastic?

    Maybe I should use soap and water only?

    On a premium edition the trim is real wood (Sapele) with a lot of clearcoat. I use Pledge because it seems to work well especially on the steering wheel. On the seats I just use warm water and a ocasional spray from some Griots interior cleaner for stubborn areas.

    I have the 2008 premium edition and I did not know that. We ate talking about all the plastic bits on the console, right?

    I assumed, like everything else, it was cheep plastic.

    All the "wood" trim on the premium is real. Considering the wood trim on the console runs almost $200.00 each side that would be a lot of money for plastic.

    Wow, armed with this new knowledge I immediately went out and wiped mine down. I also was able to find that Ace Hardware is a local supplier of 303 products.

    Thanks
