I've got some time to kill this afternoon, and I'm wondering what you use to clean the wood trim in your cars? Does Pledge work good, or is that too harsh?

I use some armorall cleaner, it says it's designed for all interior surfaces so I clean and then just polish it with a microfiber towel.

As it is a W140, I only use natural yoghurt on lambswool fibre pledgets with a hint of alphahydroxyceramide. If Walmart are out of that, a Brillo Pad.

Hahaha gartracescort, add to that trichloroethane 111 and you've got quite the cocktail.

I would assume there isn't too much gunk built up on your wood so just a mild dish soap detergent in warm water, towel wrung out smartly of course. Then Pledge just sparkles it up nicely.

I've found that Pledge works well. I'll spray the larger areas around the gear shift knob with a good amount then start working it with my fingers. The water evaporates, leaving the wax behind which I continue to work in. This is great in filling in the little scratches in the wood. Then take a clean soft cloth and buff the excess to a great shine. It takes a few times though but it's worth it.
