    I'm having trouble clean my dark vinyl dash . I used Maguire's vinyl dash cleaner and there is still some white colored residue left on the dash.
    What do you guys recommend.

    I'm talking about a whitish stain on the vinyl dash not dust. It's difficult to get out any suggestions ?

    Swiffer to remove dust. Anything more serious I use a dampened paper towel.

    same thing happened to me on the door because I use sunblock for my tattoos and it was all over in the little pits. What i used was some windex and a towel and I also used a crappy plastic brush top that came with automotive carpet cleaner. It was the cheep top of the bottle that your supposed to use to scrub the carpet. Like this brush top

    It worked and it didnt wear out the actual shine on the door vinyl.
    good luck
