Default nice after-shine with these....

I bought a can of cloths from armor all. extreme shine, really make the steering wheel and dash pop, and knowing me, i like that, esp. my steering wheel, I always make it slippery and love shining the center ford emblem up. I have heard talk of some people who hate armor all, but for me, it does the job. and my tires are shiny black. My dad was jealous of the tires so he had me spray the armor all extreme tire shine on his GMC Sierra's tires. I like this stuff. haha.

Have used armor all interior wipes before. They tend to attach dust more after using them.

Used the tire shine as well. it is nasty when you get it on your hands and it does last a long time on the tire.

Yeah that product does have an odd smell. But it's good hearing that you're happy with the results.

You should clean the tires with simple green first or Westley tire bleach then use the tire shine for better results.

There is only one thing in the world that I like slippery...
and it sure as hell isn't the steering wheel!!
Does it say anything about prolonged skin contact?
That shit ain't good for ya'.

I have been using the armor all cleaning wipes for the last 6 years in my focus (black interior) then I used them in the ranger also black and has since turned the plastic grey in several places so just a warning that be careful with some of there products....

I honestly use your standard dust remover, using it for 6 years on various vehicles and never had any issues of changing colour, streak or greasyness, works wonders
