Cleaning without damaging.

Hello. I recently bought a car, and hope to keep the interior it tip top shape. Im looking for products that will clean well, without harming with any drying or damaging. Should I use a different product for the plastic 'wood than the vinyl? Im also looking for a non-glossy, non-greasy protectant. Armour All, or something else? Thank you very much.

Also, any tips on how all of you keep your interior looking great. It will be a daily driver, but I sure don't want it to look likt one.

I've had mixed results with Armor All. The trim shop that did parts of my '67 interior sold me a product called Vinylex that seems to work better, or more consistent.

For a daily driver all I have done in the past is use a mild soap and water or some cleaner and kept it clean..The major thing in keeping the interior nice is to make that a part of the weekly car wash routine and avoid if possible accumulations of trash and such..I am really not sold on some of the so-called protectants although armor-all seems to be about the best I know of..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
