Working on dash pad from 69 vert. Cleaned for several days, using different cleaners and Sems soap, cigarette smoke smells worse after 40 years. Looking much better, now looking for something to soften and leave a nice luster not shiny look. Don't care for them petroleum waste products. Am trying saddle soap right now. Any ideas?

I'm a big fan of Lexol, but mostly for how it works with dried out leather. Not sure how it would work on vinyl.



They also have vinyl products... from their website; http://www.lexol.com/education


Problem:
I need a good, trusted protectant to clean and protect the vinyl, rubber and plastic in my car (e.g. dashboard, console, etc.).

Solution:
Lexol Vinylex Protectant is powered by dual silicon action to clean and protect your car’s vinyl, rubber and plastic. Use it regularly to protect against UV damage, cracks and fading; it will leave your vinyl, rubber and plastic with a beautiful healthy sheen.

There are many different interesting ways to clean these days, but I always clean with a microfiber cloth first, then use a steam cleaner, and finally polish. Interesting tips for steam cleaning can be found at Car steam cleaning process | What is car steam clean? and other parts of the cabin can be safely and effectively clean with steam. If you need disinfection, then this method is also suitable.
