What's best to use to clean the plastic interior dash, doors, all plastic and is Armor All good to use on the dash and doors or is there something better now?

I would never use Armor All on my car. It is an oil based product that will lead to plastics and rubbers to dry out and dry rot. Use something water based. You will have to apply it more often than an oil based, but better protects the surface.

I use Prima Nero. Its available from Amazon. Fantastic product. The only thing I will use on my tires and interior. And it smells like bananas lol.

I just started using chemical guys innerclean. It doesn't have much shine to it, dries to the touch and smells like pineapples. The smell does fade after a couple of days.

303 Aerospace Protectant, I've been using this stuff for all interior bits for 10 years on various cars and I really like it.

+1 for 303! It's been my favorite for the last ten years; I also apply it to my convertible top

I ruined my Mastercraft Prostar 190 Marine Vinyl with Armorall. The Mastercraft manual recommends Aerospace 303.
I just bought RaggTopp Vinyl Conditioner for my convertible top. I will try it on the interior too. According to Wolfstein's it is good for all vinyl.

303 asrospace is like a gift handed down from the heavens. Honestly havnt used anything that provides the same natural sheen and good protrction. Very easy to use and will keep your vinyls and plastic looking great!

Ive used on my tires a couple times but a brass bristle brush with simple green degreaser followed by turtle wax ultimate black tire cleaner with the same brush works amazing. I always follow up with ultimate black (turtle wax) tire dressing as well

303 is a great product and I use it as well, but it's pretty pricey to use on tires. I clean them at the same time I clean my wheels with Maguiar's Hot Rims All Wheels and then use Griot's Garage Vinyl and Rubber Dressing on the tires. They come out with a deep black look with no shine. I hate shiny rubber.

1Z Einszett sells a plastic cleaner which leaves absolutely no shine and simply cleans the dash and other various plastics. it works very well

Is it safe to assume 303 Aerospace Automotive is the same stuff y'all are talking about? I was gonna order it on Amazon, they have wipes ....super convenient.

303 (30381) Automotive Protectant Wipes, 40 ct. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0185PU4C0..._MjwpxbJ9J8FZZ

I have never used it in that form, but it looks like the same stuff. Remember, those types of containers tend to dry out, but are convenient.

I ended up getting the spray so I could brush it into harder reach spots

Another vote for 303 protectant. It can remove dirt aside from leaving a clean look finish.
