I did not see were it says no Armoral. Guess I should check again. When I asked the pro's at the car wash I take my car to I was also conserned because I never seen a dash made of the rubber like material like our cars. The guy at the car wash said he has been using Armoral on all the Magnums and 300's that he has done. I got it done with Armoral for the first time last week. And I will tell you it looks really good. But I will try and find were it says in the manual no Armoral and if it does I will tell my car wash guy not to use it anymore.Murunga said:The manual says no Armorall, just a damp cloth. It does say you can use mopar upholstery cleaner or equivent. What exactly is equivilent??
Thanks in advance.
I guess good thing they did not put it on my seats just the dash and the door panels. No more though I will just use the damp cloth in the future it will also save me $$$$ at the car wash.hemibates said:Believe it or not not they say that armoral actually will help the dash CRACK!! Truth to this I have no idea, but I do know that armoral does dry out and crack the leather!! Not from my personal car but to my friends truck (totally killed the seats in less than a year). Why he put that on the seats who knows.
What the hell kind of NOTE is that?mnunes said:There are a couple reasons I can think of that they would say not to use Armor All. I don't claim to have in-depth knowledge of the topic, but there's been a years-long debate going on about whether Armor All causes dashboards to crack or not. Evidence that supports this theory abounds as does evidence that Armor All works as advertised and actually extends the dashboard's life. "Scientific" reasoning points to Armor All containing chemicals that bring the rubber/vinyl's natural oils to the surface, thereby causing premature drying and cracking; regular use of Armor All becomes necessary to keep the surface internally lubricated.
Another reason could be that regular Armor All produces a high gloss that can be distracting or dangerous in the driver's field of view; Armor All does make a low gloss version that would make this point moot.
All that said, I would go with the manufacturer's (Dodge's) instructions rather than chance it. It's pretty rare that someone will tell you specifically to NOT do something that is normally accepted unles they know something we don't.
NOTE: Please don't use this post as an excuse to start the "yes it does" "no it doesn't" war on this forum. If you were planning to start the war before I posted, please feel free, just don't say it was my fault.
Rain-X is ok... on the windows and windshield. As for using it on interior pieces, I don't think I would use it for that. For collecting dust off the dash, I use one of those special dust "mops". It works well and because of the handle and length of the mop, it can easily reach those hard to reach places on the dash.trvol said:I like to use the pledge metal, glass and wood wipes(wal-mart or other) to clean and shine. Also try the "swiffer" type dusters that are disposable. They pick up all the lint and dust "electrostatic (sp)". I have been using rain-x. I as seeing that I am an boy among men when it comes to car knowledge in this forum----Is rain-x ok?
