Just a cleaner, no shine?

Okay so I want something to clean the interior with, just clean, not shine. I know a lot of you recommend Natural Shine by Meguiarís but I donít want any shine, I just want something I can spray on and wipe off or even in wipe form to clean. I got some Megís Quick Detailer but it looks too complicated so Iím going to take it back. I used to use Armor All cleaning wipes but I see you all donít recommend that either.

So is the Natural Shine my best option? I'll take some shine if I have to even though I don't want it. But is it a spray on wipe off kind of thing?

I appreciate any input!

I just use a bucket of water and a rag, and go behind that with a dry towl. I try not to use any chemicals on my int. picies.

one of those handheld swiffer dusters maybe?

I use the meguires dash foam on most of the plastics on my car. It lasts a while, has a slight shine to it, and makes dust very easy to remove with a swipe of a microfiber towel.

Thanks everyone, for light dust I would probably use a Swiffer but there's some gunk I need to clean, I just got the car and the dealer didn't do a very good job cleaning it.

Any of these do an excellent job with a nice matte finish.

No prob. I've used the 108 and Natural Look. I haven't tried the 303, but I've heard so many good things about it for this purpose I wouldn't hesitate to give it a shot.

You get the 'matte' finish with Meguiar's Quick Interior Detailer, too.

What I found to be the best is to spray some Stoner glass cleaner on the area you want to clean. Then take a warm bucket of water and a rag and go over the area so you pick up the cleaner from the plastic. Here are some pictures of my interior.

moparman-The Quick Detailer was too complicated for me. Like I said, I wanted a simple spray on, wipe off. The Quick Detailer was saying not to let it dry on it's own and all this stuff, too much hassle for me.

fearless-Very nice! I think I'm going to try plain water and see how that works out.

No problem, Stoner glass cleaner does wonders on just about everything.
