What are you using now?

Are you cleaning or dressing? (many people confuse the 2 things as the same)

Do you have dirt and stuff you need to remove or are you simply trying to spruce them up a little?

Have you been using any silicone based wipes or products?

Im pretty sure Im cleaning but if you could tell me the difference that would be great. I have used most everything on them. They look good right when I get done but after about 10 min they dry and then I can see all the stuff I just cleaned. I have never heard of Adams but I will sure give it a try.

Well, what are you using now?

Many people commonly mistake things like the armorall wipes as something that cleans, when in reality all its doing is putting down a layer of shiny silicone goop that attracts more dust.

To effectively 'detail' interior panels you need to clean them, which means to remove old product, dirt, and anything else that might be on the panel. Following that with a 'dressing' or 'conditioner' is what will give you the desired look and protection.

There aren't many things on the market that do both tasks in one step b/c they kind of work against eachother.

From our line -

Clean everything using Adam's Leather & Interior Cleaner. Its designed to be used on any hard interior surface like door panels, dash, steering wheel, leather seats, etc. Water based so you can cut it down if you don't need a really strong cleaner. Generally 1:1 is enough for average cleaning. Since you've been using silicone products you might want to use it full strength on the dash and doors for the first time out to get that all off of there.

Follow that with an application of Adam's Leather & Interior Conditioner. This will dry to a nice matte look and has SPF 65 UV protection to prevent fading and drying. Like the cleaner its good on everything including leather seats and other 'hard' interior surfaces.
