Phil,

What is the best - and safest - way to clean specks of white oil-based paint from black interior surfaces (leather seat, steering wheel, center arm rest)? I had sprayed "Kilz Upshot" on a ceiling in the house and then drove my car without realizing I had specks of paint on my hands and clothes.

Thanks,
Paul

Paul,

What have you tried?

1Z einszett Plastic Deep Cleaner may work.

What's the best product for cleaning and conditioning the boston leather interior of some BMW's?

Mine are in good condition, but they seem dry and I would like to give them a good cleaning since I"m the new owner, and then condition them. I was looking into Chemical Guys but there are so many products that I'm kind of lost. Thanks!

Some of the break dust and general dirt has caked on to my inner wheel rims (fronts) and I can't get it off. It's raise up and spraying with cleaner pre-wash didn't help. What can I use to loosen this off without scratching the coating?

I am looking to purchase a air pressure dryer for my car. So here is my dilemma, why spend 100's of $ on one when I can buy a cheap handyvac and use only its air pressure release side strictly for drying my car?

Sounds like you need to remove each wheel, saturate the crud with wheel cleaner, let it soak, and agitate it with a brush... Repeat until clean.

I would pull the wheels off and do a complete clean up on it, can you get Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner out there?

Use the proper brushes and products and you should have better results, how long ha it been since you clean up the inner wheels?

I've used the vac and the blow type vacs and I feel they don't work as well. Are you looking to dry the complete car or just the crevices, lugs, grills.

Take a look
