What do you guys recommend for cleaning the leather dashboard? I used some Armour All wipes and it looks terrible. I was thinking maybe I should just use some soapy water and a dry towel? I would love to hear some suggestions.

Is the 9th gen leather or leatherette? If leather, I would use leather conditioner. Personally I use Zaino leather conditioner on my leather dash twice a year and then simply use a Swifter dry cloth in between to take off the dust as needed.

@PX4855 - what do you mean by it looks "terrible"? Does the "shine" look uneven or something? Personally, I've grown to dislike the super-shiny armour all look. I now use a "natural shine" product for things like dashboards - looks clean without looking "fake".

I believe it's leatherette, but I guess it could be leather.. I'm not sure honestly. It ended up leaving "shiny" streaks on the dash. I like jtrosky's recommendation.. I think I'll give that a try.

It isn't leather it's actually a very soft plastic if I'm not mistaken.
I use Meguiars Natural Shine protectant on mine and it works great. You could also just use a damp microfiber towel but then it wouldn't add any shine. I like just a small amount of shine.

^^Agree - I also like the "Natural Shine" products - makes it looks nice without over-doing it.

Don't use anything with a silicone base, like Armor All. One of the best and easiest to find has already been mentioned .. 303.
