Default Best dash cleaner/protectant?

I just finished tradding complete interiors with another integra owner, my tan interior for his black. Anyways, my new black interior is unpleasantley shinny, Im not sure what dash protectant the privious owner of the black interior used. Is the a product out there that will clean it, protect it, but not make it shinny? I don't like the shinny silicone look!

Meguirs just came out with an interior cleaner and protectant. It smells like a leather coat, but works really good. Kind of gives your car that brand new smell.

It doesn't make it all shinny does it? Somtime this week Im going to take simple green and a tooth brush to the interior cause its hella dirty. I think I may try the Meguirs stuff after I clean it all if it won't make it all shinny.

I havent found anything better than a rag
most of the stuff I used on my other cars made it all nasty even if the mfg claimed low shine

Bump to this! I cleaned my dash with a wet rag, but need something that will protect from the sun. Like above I am looking for something that gives a dull look and not the bling. My dash feels really dry Click the image to open in full size.

I want to know too. I tried using that stupid armor all stuff but it didn't look right to me. I need to protect my dash so that it won't crack.

Try Aerospace 303. Really matte finish... Armor All also has a low gloss version if I'm not mistaken.

armorall has silicon in it which actually magnifies uv rays. i just use a wet rag and a dry towel. doesnt attract dust like armor all.
