    I have quite thick grime on the interior.....you know when you can get your nail on it and scrpe it away in chunks lol.

    Just bought the car so not from myself, though i need to clean it all off.

    What products have you guys used or know about that may help remove this dirt without having to get a brush and risk scratching the trim?

    Jase

    I use g101 at work on sweets and grubby sweat left on the steering wheel over the years, spray it on leave for 10mins and wipe off, but you might have to do it a cple times if its thick layers.


    To do list.

    Where is this grime?

    on the dash i would use a nail brush and a soloution of soapy (car shampoo) water and scrub away, you wont scratch the trim with a brush,

    If its leather and its really dirty, soapy water and a nail brush again. Then i use lexol leather cleaner and lexol leather conditioner

    Car mats, take em out and jet wash them, hand them on the line to dry

    Interior carpet, use a carpet stain remover, i cant remember what one i use. but its quite good spray it on blot it with kitch roll and it brings the marks out, even from baige

    You might find q-tips useful for getting in all the small gaps around switches etc.
