I have some buildup in my truck on the steering wheel, door handles, door
pulls, door panels, etc. This is from oil in the skin, as well as oil from
What is a good cleaner to take this off that won't dry out the fake or maybe
real leather? And if it does dry it out, what would be a good product to
restore it? I just want it clean again, and not have it dry and crack.
Saddlesoap? Simple Green?
Heart surgery pending?

Only if you wanna keep using it forever. IIRC, it pulls the loose
compounds out of the top layer of plastic as it evaporates. Your FLAPS
has other magic potions that supposedly do not do this. OP, ask over in
the rec.autos.* groups- those people are always up on the latest and

I have heard several caveats NOT to use Armorall. Enough so that I think it
is not the best choice. For a clean surface, maybe, but I am inquiring
about how to clean some deep grime, and to take care of it long term.
I've not had a problem in the desert, using ArmorAll, once every five

Tell you what to do! Have Lanolin, rub it on with a micro-fiber cloth?
See if that helps clean --??
I've heard Armor All is good for plastic and rubber, whcich is exposed
to sunlight. Helps keep the plastic from drying out.
For cleaner, I like Simple Green. That and babywipes (spray the simple
green on the surface, or the baby wipe). Baby wipes are stronger than
paper towels or paper napkins.
If you like bright white wall tires, Westleys Bleche White used to be
good. Spray it on, scrub brush the sidewall, and then rinse with
water. Really brings out the white.
