NO!! STOP!!!

DO NOT! repeat, DO NOT! put anything AT ALL on the dash! Just clean it with a warm damp (well wrung out) microfiber or high quality cotton towel.. The foremost detailers that I know.. the ones that get paid $100's to do a car, NEVER use greasy, "Armorall" type crap on ANY surface... You want to restore that nice new looking "matte" finish, not create a mirror! DON'T DO IT!

Water is your best friend... use it in place of most solvents and you'll be in good shape, as will your car. Only the REAL Leather needs a product to keep it from cracking, and even that should be used sparingly and not evey time.. I strongly recommend Lexol for that.
