HI.

I have used meguiars tech protect and supere shine microfiber towel, but the towel generates static electricity, and im afraid of using it on my airbags, i dont want a airbag in my face caused by static electricity.

Any ideas, is this safe?

I have the same static issue with NXT Tech Protectant, seems to happen with any towel. Anyway.... I am no airbag expert but I would have to guess its safe, I imagine the air bags were/are designed to be safe with every type of 'interference' imaginable(static electricity/cell phones/screaming kids....). Just my thoughts!

In order for a air bag to fire there is a gravity switch that needs to be engaged first to activate the airbag. I have never ever heard of an airbag ever going off while someone was cleaning there dash. I think movies make us think that an airbag will fire on with the smallest provocation. But that is just not true. Clean away with out worry.
