    I made the mistake of taking my car to a "high-end" detail shop. When I got the car back my interior was very shiney due to the armorall the dumped all over my interior.

    I hate the shine it left, is there anything I can use to get the armorall off... everything in my interior?

    I doubt they used the regular Armor All, it doesn't have any more shine than Meguiars #40 or Vinylex. Either they used some high gloss formula or the typical greasy shit most of them use to hide the fact they didn't actually clean the dash.

    Woolite/water mixture will clean it off completely.

    I use it on all interior surfaces except the glass.

    Woolite - yes, the same Woolite used to gently wash sweaters and stuff like that. Mix it in a spray bottle at 6 parts water and 1 part Woolite. Spray liberally on the surface, use a small plastic brush, scrub the surface and dry with a cloth towel. It works great on all fabrics, carpets, vinyl and yes, leather - in fact, it will leave the leather very soft after using.

    Lexus specifically recommends using water and a wool based detergent on their leather-and it is in the owner's manual.

    did it stay that way? I know alot of products turn my carpet/upholstery white, but when it dries its clean and back to normal
