Begin with a deep clean
If the dash is shiny, has any grime build up, if you've been using other products on it previously, or you're using Vinyl Care for the first time on a car that's new to you, our first step is to deep clean it with our Orange Agent citrus based all purpose cleaner. This is a safe pH balanced formula that's ideal for a more intensive clean on a lot of surfaces, with vinyl and plastic being some of its best.
Products that leave a shine all use silicones in their formula's so it's essential to remove this before applying our low sheen Vinyl Care. If you don't do this step, you may get an uneven finish, even a "fish eye" type look as Vinyl Care will not not layer on top of silicones.
To apply, spray Orange Agent to lightly dampen one side of the Square Bear microfibre applicator pad. Work in small sections at a time, applying in a circular motion to the surface, working it in reasonably well. Now this is the important bit; wipe off the Orange Agent with a folded, clean low pile microfibre cloth like our Plush Daddy or Dirty Deeds while it's still wet. You remove it while wet, so all the grime and silicones you've cleaned off are wiped into the cloth with the cleaning solution, as if you let it dry, it will bond back onto the plastic surface you're trying to clean. Be sure to inspect and then turn/ fold this wipe cloth to a fresh clean side when you begin seeing any dirt and grime building up in it.
If you notice the microfibre applicator getting slightly dirty, (especially when cleaning more grime affected surfaces) you can hand wash it out in fresh water, then wring till its dry/ damp, apply Orange Agent and carry on cleaning.
Continue doing this system of cleaning, till the entire area is done.
Its leaves a dry and pretty stark finish, so you'll now need to finish it off with the Vinyl Care.
