It has come to my recent attention the severity of using such products on your car's interior. By doing so you are actually creating a magnifying glass over the surface of whatever you apply it to, and you will destroy the finish in no time.<p>Believe it or not, soap/water is your best bet for keeping it clean without harming it.<p><IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"><p>(the more you know) haha

If you don't use a window shade you still probably want to find some sort of protectant. Just wipe it down after application for a low gloss finish. I usually just dust mine off, but I put up a window shade almost every time I park.

tires? sure, but once it wears off you are left with a brownish tint. this is common of many tire shines.<p>you will be very hard pressed to find an applicant that doesn't have some sort of adverse affect.

Maybe I'll just use it on my shiny tin foil hat! Thanks, great thing about bulletin boards is the amount of learning that can be accomplished by the sharing of others.
