x2! It does wonders. I pull the door panels when i do it though. And mud on the door fine carpet, i do hot water on a rag and scrub it away, and vaccum it out. Makes the panels looklike new.

Man you guys must have some serious **** on your doors lol

I just use a damp rag. i avoid stuff like windex cause it dries out the plastic and makes it fade. so does armor all

x2 I was gonna say the same thing, but expected to get flamed because I have a car that I dont offroad and get the interior dirty. However I did the same with my Ranger, damp cloth. Makes the interior look new and not glossy fake like.

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser with a little windex. Guaranteed to clean, it works wonders believe me. Your interior will look brand new.

I use the Fantastic Oxy cleaner it works well also for really dirty stuff I use a product called mean green both work well. that with some damp rags and all is well. the mean green really works nice on rubber mats as well.

as far as detail stuff before I painted all my stuff I used the Black majic tire wet and a damp rag. works great and won't fade. Now I just wax it.

Maybe it's because I am fairly new and I am reading this for the first time. I am sure I am not the only newer guy this has happened to.
