Wrinkle Dash Cleaning

Post by Adrian Oliver » Tue Apr 21, 2020 6:00 pm

Hello everyone, hope you are all well and coping with this awful virus.

I've managed to get polish on my dashboard wrinkle paint.
It won't shift with regular interior cleaner, any ideas? WD40? 😕

I guess it may depend on what type of polish you have used?
As a first step I would contact the polish manufacturer and see if they can help.

You could try white spirit - I think unlikely to affect the paint. After that perhaps try brake and clutch cleaner - try and get one which claims not to damage paintwork, but try with a paintbrush on an inconspicuous area to make sure!

Why not try a little WD40 in an inconspicuous place ?

I think I'd try some hot soapy water first. Brush it in and wipe off with a paper towel.

I would agree Paul. In the absence of any guidance from the polish manufacturer try the mildest substances first. A toothbrush would be my weapon of choice - getting into all those wrinkles........
