I tried armorall wipes, not impressed. I have a problem with black marks on my Sandy Beige, doors mostly. I can't seem to find anything to remove them including 409 type cleaners. Any ideas?

a good product is "goof-off" (Home Depot) on a rag will get those black scuffs out. It takes some rubbing - not too hard - then hit it with a good leather treatment - throw that armourall away. Connelly, or any REAL leather treatment will help soften/clean up the leather after you get rid of the scuffs.

Also try Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. And instead of Armor All, I use Pledge wipes- not as slick and nasty.

My mom uses Zymol leather care ( both the spray cleaner and the white conditioner) on her car. Last time I cleaned it with her, that Zymol leather cleaner got all the black marks from her heels off the tan leather... and the tan plastic... and the tan seats....

I swear by Zymol. Throw Armour All away.

I second the Mr. Clean for your door panels. Best cleaner i have ever used. No need for detergent use with it either..just get it wet.

A good product that will get scuff marks and grease marks off is GoJo. Get the kind without the pumice in it. put a little on a wet terry cloth & it will work wonders.

Compressed air and a chaser rag does wonders for hard to reach but not so hard to see cracks and crevices (make sure they are slightly damp with your favorite cleaner).

i also use the 2 step zymol products and they are awesome. f*ck armor all i think when u shine up all your plastic and your dash and stuff it just looks cheesy and cheap. a-foam by Ardex is good stuff too and you can use it on everything inside, literally. thats what we use at the dealer.

+1 for mr. clean magic erasers.
i just restored my entire e30 interior with these things.
20 years worth of filth wiped right away.
i even used the target knockoff brand.
i wish i had before/after shots.

I tried armorall baby wipes, not satisfied. I have a issue with dark represents on my Exotic Bravo, gates mostly. I can't seem to discover anything to eliminate them such as 409 kind cleaning solutions. . . . Any Help might really be appreciated . . . . . . .
