    Yeah, the APC's are safe on the leather seats and vinyl.

    While the product is safe, the biggest mistake people make with any cleaner on leather is that they spray it on and then scrub like crazy with a terry towel, to the point where they literally wear away the coating on the leather. They then blame the product. So, while this product is perfectly safe to use on leather and leather, how you use it (or any other cleaner from any other manufacturer, for that matter) is as important, if not more so.

    Re: Multi-Purpose Cleaner

    Understand... And you are right about "correct application" Bottom line, I guess the rule is don't go crazy with it or any other cleaner. Thanks MIke!!!

    I am thinking this cleaner may be good to use to remove white wax residue on exterior plastic & rubber trim parts. Also, to remove the slippery silicone residue from interior areas like dash and arm rests?

    Your thoughts and input always welcomed.

    I can't vouch for it personally, as I've obviously never used it yet, but if it is truly a direct replacement for APC, then yes it should work for both of these applications. I usually use APC+ diluted at 7:1 to get wax off of trim that someone has left on there for long periods of time. If the wax has been freshly applied and you are taking care of the wax on the trim in a timely manner, then this should be able to get rid of it quite easily (again, assuming that it works in the same manner as APC).

    Re: Multi-Purpose Cleaner

    Can this product be used for dried dog drool (yuck) on the plastic trim around the windows of a Ford Focus? As Michael pointed out, I'm one of those who doesn't want to buy a large container of APC.

    Thanks! This has always been an issue when working on cars. Especially since they have discontinued #39.
