buy a cleaner or try using your car wash shampoo with soft water in a spray bottle!

Based on my experience I would suggest the Dashboard cleaner offered by the Com-paint guys. I had used it many a times and amazed with the output. Its just Rs 145/ . worth it bro.

I didnt find it very effective, had ordered this and tyre glaze. It left a very sticky film on the dashboard which didnt repel dust. Would love to see whats the stuff used by Maruti Service Center guys, their dash finish is awesome and long lasting.

Clean the plastics with what sohail recommended, Later use Formula 1 dashboard protectant, This does not leave sticky residue behind and helps dust to just hoover on the surface which can be cleaned easily.

For seats I use Mr.leather and give pretty good result. For exterior I use SONAX shampoo. beige interior and dash board is the one area I am facing problem. Based on the suggestions I decided to try 'Com-Raid - Dashboard Shiner.

Wonderbrands has been heavily advertising a product called Dentking on TV. It offers it for 2490 and is offering Scratchout Pro Pen free with it. Anyone tried it? I have a very small dent of about 5 cms which i guess can be removed by this product. Also some small superficial scratches. But I think 2490 is a big amount to spend for this. If anyone has tried it, please post your review.

You can use Amway LOC, little concentrated solution with less water and sponge- it will work like magic, used on my i-10 interiors and beige seats.
PM me if you want a trial, we live close by and can spare

I tried diluted vinegar solution as mentioned in this post. It worked well enough for me. You can give that a try.

Thanks for the information, I tried a shoe cleaning foam on the beige plastic and result is satisfactory.I forgot the brand name, saw my friend cleaning his shoes with it and tried it on car just to check its cleaning ability.
