Ideas on dash shiner??

Hey guys i've looked everywhere with no luck. What i'm looking for is a dash shine such as armour all or anything else which is SCENTED. I'm tired of wasting money on car scents that last 2 days and then they're garbage. I remember 5 years ago i had an Oldsmobile at the time and i think i found an armour all at Walmart which was Strawberry scented armour all, and it smelled amazing!!! why can't I find these anymore??

any help would greatly appreciated.

The Mothers product smells pretty good, but I'm more concerned about protection than scent. Put an open box of dryer sheets under your seat, that will smell fresh and last.

The dryer sheets are a good idea.

I'll try the dryer sheets idea when my wife gets home from work. I let her take my truck to work today so i can spend the day detailing and washing her Pilot. I must say when both of our trucks are clean, my driveway has 2 badazz vehicles in it. I love my Ranger but I really like her Pilot too.

hmmmmmmm those look pretty good, not what I had in mind but they might do the job. I really like the oilly look that armour all leaves behind, i'm not sure if those wipes leave the shine, but the orange scent is probably great.

I use Armor all cleaning wipes on the dash. Then I use Armor all Protectant for the black trim. I prefer Turtle F21 protectant better but they dont make them in wipes

Take the air vent guards out of your dash of your truck and stick a dryer sheet inside the open vent below the tube and then put the vent guard back on. This will keep a steady air flow as before (won't affect it at all) but will blow out scented freshness of whatever scent for like a month straight. The dryer sheet will be not seen either once the guard is put back in place.
Thats a car detailer secret.

Glade makes a carpet odor stuff.

If you have carpet in your Ranger/Pilot just sprinkle this stuff down then vaccum the carpet

Mothers protectant. I like the way it smells, and it gets the job done real well. Armor All is alcohol based and will cause damage to your dashboard, mothers isn't.
