    I have a new 2017 Tahoe Premier with the soft touch interior. I used to use 303 Aerospace when cleaning and detailing my truck. What does everyone use on the soft touch that doesn't change the appearance or make it wet.

    thanks in advance.

    I've used Meguiar's Quick Interior detailer -- I'ved used this as part of my regime on Lexus on all things inside including the LCD screen. Will continue to use it on my new Denali ....

    Ditto...been using the quick interior cleaner for years and love how simple and clean it leaves everything. No shine, no grease, etc.

    I've used the 303 aerospace before but even that leaves behind a slight shiny residue.

    I have used the Meguiars Quick detailer in the past. It works well. For some reason, when I used the QD with the car in my shop (overhead door closed and A/C on) I get high off the QD. I got tired of that.

    Now I prefer and use the Mckees37 Total Interior Cleaner and then the Interior surface protectant when I do a deep clean. I find that I get more cleaning action to get rid of any dust or particles lingering around. Then for maintenance, I use the Mckees Fast Detailer.

    For leather, I also like the mckees all in one leather lotion

    Give them a try, you'll like them

    Yep those are it, you listed the Mckees part numbers.

    This is what I use http://www.mckees37.com/interior-kit.html (this is a kit) but the better deal to is to pick the 6 pack or the 12 pack mix and match products. (I calculated it our and it makes the unit price a lot cheaper...couple that with a coupon)

    The total interior cleaner. I just spray it on and use a detailing brush or microfiber to agitate it. You will get some of the dirt, dust and grime up. (even though you dont see it before you clean, you will see it come up from the dash or door panels) kind of gross really. Wipe dry and then go back over with the protectant.

    I like this better than just using an interior detailer. The reason why is, I don't see the detailer as cleaning my interior. Just my opinion. That and the smell of an interior cleaner.

    Might be nice to pick up the Fast detailer, but you could use any detailer you want really. Dont get me wrong, The Megs Ultimate Interior detailer works well for a interior cleaner. I just couldn't deal with the chemical smell when using it in my shop.

    Use the Total Interior cleaner and the protectant when you deep clean, and use the detailer when you want to maintenance clean. Does this make sense?


    I prefer the Mckees All-in one leather lotion for my leather.

    You can either use the all-in-one LL or the 70/30-UV protectant combo. I prefer the AIO LL for my seats and steering wheel. I have used the Megs leather cleaner and conditoner, and it worked well, but then I had 2 bottles of products to Wipe on and wipe off. the AIO just wipe on and off and done!

    That's just me and my experience with these products.
