Question Dashboard Cleaning Questions.

I just bought a 2019 Pacifica and I would like to know what the dashboard is made of and what should I use to clean it.

It is made of vinyl. Clean with a damp rag or sponge with VERY little detergent.
Hard plastic parts can be dusted with a dry paintbrush. Finger prints can be cleaned with windex or similar.

My experience is that will make the dash very shiny, which will make it reflect in the windshield, which I find very annoying. Much prefer more of a matte appearance to the dash. I just wipe it with a damp cloth or, when vacuuming the carpet, put on the soft bristle brush attach,ent and vacuum the dash. In my case, it usually just has some dust and dog hair on it, comes right up either way.

Armorall also has chemicals that migrate to the inside of the windshield, making it greasy, foggy, hazy.

Chemicals used to produce the vinyl dash will continually leech out and create a film on the inside of the windshield even if left untreated. I keep a microfiber cloth in the door pocket and just wipe everything down from time to time.
