Has anyone been using any products on the interior with success? I've always just used armor-all and a vacuum... might put a little more love into this one! More specifically- what has anyone used to clean the black matte dash material? Any recommendations for the cloth headliner? What about the faux-leather seats?

I use Detailer’s Pride Total Interior Cleaner applied to a microfiber towel and it works nicely on all surfaces. Easily removes any kick (scuff) marks from doors, glovebox, back of seats, etc! Then I just vaccuum the carpets with my Dyson hand vaccuum.

What are you using to clean the touchscreen?
I haven't tackled that yet and it's finger print city. Not a full 6 week's worth as I did peel off the screen protector that was on it from the factory. I need to double check if the Total Interior Cleaner is safe on the screen.

So far I have just been using a clean microfiber glasses cloth and it cleans it to perfection!

Would it be better if I kept that plastic screen protector on for as long as possible? (My grandparents would be so proud). Is there any reason to warrant removing it?
It's soft. It will look dull. It will scratch.
Whereas your screen, designed to be touched, will not scratch.
Go pull it off right now. We'll wait here while you do it.

Go on.

I have found a camera lens cleaning solution (like ROR or similar) works well. Just a squirt or two on a microfiber towel or lens cleaning cloth, and wipe.

This stuff is designed to break down oil from your hands so it makes quick work of cleaning screens.

When I got my car coated at Pristine, Mike provided me a nice gift bag of cleaning products. In it was this quick detailer. He said you can use it (with a good quality microfiber cloth) on anything except glass. So far so good. Just make sure you dilute it to the correct ratio.
