For interior vinyl and rubber I have found that Griot's Garage ‘Vinyl and Rubber Dressing’ cleans and removes embedded dirt and grim much better than other products I have tried. Griot's Garage ‘Vinyl and Rubber Dressing’ contains no silicone and no waxes. It leaves a satin finish that looks the way your car looked when you took delivery. The product does not attract dust or leave a greasy, slippery film behind. It also provides an ultraviolet (UV) blocking sunscreen to help keep the vinyl from cracking and fading, and lasts a long time.
Griot’s Garage ‘Leather Care’ is the best leather conditioner I have used. Some people swear that Leatherique and Zymol products are wonderful, but I have never tried them so can't comment. I treat my leather seats 2 to 3 times a year.
First vacuum the seats to remove any grit and sand from the seat seams. If the leather is soiled, simply clean it with mild face soap (like Neutrogena brand, after all it is animal skin) and a damp cloth. Apply the leather conditioner by hand like hand creme or use a foam applicator. Some people use a cloth to apply the conditioner, but the cloth absorbs a lot of the leather conditioner wasting the product. Let the conditioner soak in for several minutes. Remove any excess with clean terry cloth towels.
