Which dilution ratio would you recommend for cleaning of dashboards and leather? Will it be safe to use 15:1? I have some CF trim as well along my door panels, will this be safe with 15:1? Thanks.

I don't know what CF trim is, so I can't help there.

I find that most dirt does not require much APC to remove it, so if you were worried, you could go even more diluted, then use a stronger mix on the tougher stuff.

(Leather Stuff cleans as it protects, so you may not even need to use APC on the leather. Same is true with Natural Look protectant for the dash.)

Thank you. Sorry, let me specify, CF stands for carbon fiber. I mainly want to remove shine products from the past on my dash before I apply PB Trim Restore.

I have not cleaned real CF with APC, but interior trim I use 15:1 and either a brush or a yellow pad ( or the yellow pad made into an interior 8" cleaning mitt ).

This is on plastic and pleather ( mother of bar stool ) interior parts.

the CF trim is is smooth ?
- If so, PorPolish on a red hand pad might work good for this, start by SnW cleaning it.

I use either Natural Look or Spray and Wipe for my wife's CF in her Scion ... APC should be used if it is really filthy or it's really over-kill ... but 15:1 would also be my recommendation if you choose to use it.

Yes the CF is smooth and shiny. I'll just leave it alone to be safe. The CF is not dirty anyway. I'll just be careful when I wipe around it. Thanks for your help.

Thank you. My interior is not stained or anything, I just want to remove products on my dashboard that I've used in the past. I think 15:1 will be fine. I'll make sure to test a small section first.
