Recommend an interior plastics AIO

My interior game is solid and I enjoy it well cleaned with a subtle finish.

Currently using Sonax Cockpit cleaner on plastics and love it however it would be nice to have a similar product which has o-the-so-slight extra dressing/finish to it.

Share with me your go-to interior AIO.

Bonus points if its cheaper... you can tear through a lot of product if the interior has been silicone dressed.

I dont think such a thing exists, I mean you can get a interior quick detailer like AF spritz thats what I use on the dash and dials buy its self, but I allways wipe down the lower parts with Valet Pro citrus pre wash diluted for interior before wiping with the interior quick detailer as AF spritz doesn't have that much cleaning power.

I dont think their is an effective cleaner that also dresses the plastic as a good cleaner will break down the dressing so it really needs to be a 2 step process for any ware more than mildly dirty/dusty

I would try this KOCH CHEMIE REFRESH COCKPIT CARE cracking good stuff. Jon on Forensic detailing Chanel reviewed a lot of their products which encouraged me to get some. really good product. there is also a trade range version which is double the amount for a similar price, KOCH CHEMIE TOP STAR not used it so can't comment.

Very interested. I'll check out Jon's review.

The review is fairly brief but it seems to be the only one in English.

Love the idea of the product; cleans, protects and dresses in one.


My initial thoughts:
  • It seems a dash glossy for my tastes, I prefer an OEM look but still very tolerable for a protectant.
  • Applying it by a pad/cloth indicates it's more on the dressing/protectant side than a cleaner. I won't be shy in saying I'm asking for a lot here but I do like the way the Sonax can be sprayed and agitated with a brush then flashes to an even coat.

Having said this, I'd still be well keen to try it out. Thanks for the rec.

Sorry I donít really think itís a cleaner dressing all in one. But it leaves a nice Satin OEM finish when dry. I would give the surface a wipe with Koch Chemie Pol Star. Which is seriously good value for money. Itís £6.50 a litre which dilutes for use heavily. Really good cleaner.

If youíre talking about Sonax Cockpit (not the Xtreme) then try the Xtreme version. Itís got a better dressed finish over the Matt-effect sprays.

The next step up is Koch Chemie TopStar. Proper deep black OEM finish, but not an AIO, itís a dressing after the surface is clean.

I havenít tried the consumer Refresh Cockpit Care, but I guess itís more like the cleaner+protectant in one youíre looking for.

If youíre cleaning up a lot of silicone, then Koch Chemie Greenstar APC at 20:1 will do the job cheaper.

Thanks for the suggestions Tosh.

The version I have is actually 'extreme' however it's quite old, nigh on 7 years (I've been trying to use up a bulk product I bought a while back) so I might pick up a freshie and see if the formula has changed.

Diluted APC and a super matte spray dressing might be a good 2-step option.

I'm absolutely loving how the Sonax flashes so small gaps aren't left with residue and you aren't penalised for missing a bit here and there with the microfibre wipedown.

The only reason a slight nudge on the dressing/finish is preferable is to add a little more 'masking' to any rubbed/scuffed plastics. The matte finish is nice but if the car has been properly used then it can tend to leave marks visible.
