Car interior care and protection with the Essentials


After cleaning the interior of the car, it is good to apply protection. Leather, for example, stays more flexible if treated properly. In this insight, we explain how to do this.

Retouching of the dashboard with cockpit spray

After cleaning the interior, taking care of the car interior comes next. The plastic parts, such as the dashboard, console and door panels, may be weathered by time. But can you restore weathered plastic?

Dashboard Lotion is a moisturising lotion for all interior plastic panels. It restores the plastic panels to their original appearance. Besides its nourishing and colour-restoring capabilities, it also cleans the parts.

Dashboard Lotion is very easy to use. Spray the product on the surface and use a clean cloth or sponge to spread it evenly and rub it in.

Tip: Use Dashboard Lotion to restore rubber mats to their original colour. First clean the mats with the Interior Multi Cleaner. Then apply the lotion to the cleaned mat. Let it dry for a few minutes. Then rub the mat with a clean cloth for an even and renewed end result.

Car leather upholstery maintenance

Leather Cream is the ideal product to treat and protect a leather interior. After using the Leather Cream, the leather will regain its original appearance.

Leather Cream will make tough leather supple again. Apply Leather Cream evenly to the leather. For best results, use a soft sponge or a clean cloth. Leave to absorb for 3 to 5 minutes. Then rub with a soft cloth for the best end result.

Tip: Over time, leather will start to shine, this is due to the natural grease our hands give off and other types of dirt. You have probably come across this on a steering wheel, seats or other leather parts. With Interior Multi Cleaner, you can easily clean shiny or heavily soiled leather.
