I don't completely agree. I've only ever used Armor All on one car
dashboard. On that particular car, the dash was getting splotchy
looking and needed something. As soon as I applied it, the appearance
was as good as new and remained so until I traded the car about a year
As for the addiction:
When the plastics are first formulated, it does contain some additives
that gas off over time. When you apply a topical coating, it is on
the top surface and does not penetrate as the original mix had. It
just will not last as long so yes, it will have to be re-applied at
In my opinion, if it does not need it, why apply it? One it does need
it, you will have to do it periodically forever. It is a coating, not
a plastic additive. Once the original plastcizer is gone, you will
never replace it. Just as you have to paint y our house every dozen
years or so, a bad dash will need some help.
