Safe cleaners for interior

Hi all!

My boyfriend got me my Chibi last december, she is a bright red 2012 fiat pop with white/red interior and I love her dearly. We recently got her back from the shop and those men left nasty black grease stains all over her beautiful steering wheel and dashboard!! I would like to know if there are any safe cleaners to use for her interior, I'd like to do it myself but don't want to guess and ruin my interior. Any suggestions??

White vinegar applied with a kitchen roll always shifts greasy marks left by our spanners on the lorry's, followed up with Flash Dash to bring back the shine. Mr. Sheen also cleans glass or laminated plastics really well too but it will leave a white residue on darker surfaces. Again follow it up with a good dash shine. Just don't use thinners or meth spirits or you risk melting and a stink you'll never shift! Sure other members have their own sound recommendations but those always work for me.

Surely the answer is to take it back to the dealer and have them clean it for you?

Totally agree they made it dirty they should bloody well clean it!

A good garage will wrap the steering wheel with plastic wrap so this doesn't happen when they have it in for service/repair

Re: Safe cleaners for interior

Once it`s really clean might I suggest you treat the seats/door cards etc. with Scotchguard? Got 2 cans from Amazon and treated the 500`s interior just to protect it from the unavoidable marks you pick up. Have used it in other cars and found it a God send.
