Icon13 How to get Armorall out of crap...

I just bought an '03 ranger about a week ago (has vinyl floors) and as always, the dealer I bought it from went crazy with Armorall and everything is friggin' slippery (it wore out on the driver's side but is still nice and slippery on passenger side). So my question is obvious...how the hell do you get that crap out?

Should just wear out on its own over the course of a week or two.

I always armorall my interior and I love the wet look. Makes it look real clean.

I hate armor all its greasy and dust loves to stick to it. gives the same results as motor oil.
There are plenty of better products out now... http://autogeek.net/rubbervinyl.html
the Optimum power clean they sell sounds like it would work well for you. Other wise I would just use simple green like redneckstone suggested.

I would just use some Ammonia mixed in water, one day I decided to clean the floor. It took 2 sessions of rubbing the floor down with it and the floor was shining like new.

Also, something to keep in mind is that Armor All contains alcohol as its base. Once it evaporates, it can lead to discoloration and cracking of the plastic, rubber, whatnot. Thats why NO tonneau cover manufacturer will warranty any cover that has armor all on it.

Probably the best thing out there to give you the shine and the protections is 303. Its just like armor all without the alcohol. Plus it gives you UV protection as well.
