Mainly there are three types of car dashboard so beware what to use on them, each require different detergents than the other one.

Leather Dashboards

Stay away from dashboard cleaners that contain even “natural” elements such as alcohol, which will dry out the leather, dull its luster and create cracks. Instead, use all-natural Castile soap — a soap based on olive oil — and a damp rag to clean leather dashboards and all leather upholstery in your car. To naturally boost your dashboard’s glow and shine after cleaning, add a couple of drops of walnut oil or olive oil to a rag and buff the dashboard with it using circular motions.


Vinyl Dashboards

For vinyl dashboards, any gentle all-purpose cleaner will do. However, some all-purpose cleaners contain harsh ingredients, such as ammonia, that pull the plasticizers out of the vinyl and cause fading or cracks therefore you can use all recipe as stated above on these dashboard.

Upholstered Dashboards

Upholstery dashboard require other than the stated recipes, although the recipes can be use on them, but requires high precaution therefore use this for better results.

Toss a tablespoon of baking soda and a tablespoon of borax into your washing machine. If the dashboard upholstery has picked up road smells, add a couple drops of essential oil, such as peppermint oil, for an instantly fresher scent.
