View Full Version : What's the best way to remove another product from interior trim?

Hello all, this is my first post here. I was just wondering what's the best way to remove a protectant from my interior trim. I bought the Turtle Wax F21 protectant, and I hate the stuff. After 3 days of being on my car, it still hasn't dried, and my interior has this greasy, slick feel to it. I mean the stuff rubs off on everything. I didn't apply any of the stuff on my steering wheel, but now it too has that greasy feel to it, because of the product rubbing off on my hands, and then my hands transferring some of it to the steering wheel.

What do you guys recommend I do? I wanted to protect my car against the sun, because I have to park under it some times, but this stuff is just right down dangerous. I have to wear gloves when I drive now, and I have to constantly rub them against a damp towel because there is not enough friction in my steering wheel. Now, I just want this stuff off.

Meguair's Natural Shine or #40 are both great choices, #40 smells like the TX stuff but looks nothing like it. Meguiars Natural Shine smells great! Both products are low gloss so they give your dash natural look and feel.

you can clean off the TW stuff with #39 and then protect the interior with #40 or Natural Shine

The stuff will eventually dry off/evaporate. You may want to just rub a dry cloth on it first to get as much excess as you can off. Quick Interior Detailer should help get it off, too, and also suffices as a mild protectant if you don't want to go the Natural Shine route.

Thanks for the tips eveyone. I think I'll give #39 and #40 a try. BTW what does APC stand for?

Wow, I bought the #40 and the QID wipes and I love the stuff. The #40 does leave a slick surface, but no residue or excessive shine! I'm planning on using the #40 on everything, but the steering wheel, shifter, and hand brake. I'll use the wipes for that. Now I'm just waiting for the #39 to get shipped, so I can start getting the TW stuff off.
