If you meant to say Armorall wipes ...

NO!

Armorall is crap, any detailer will tell you the same.

try Trim Shine by stoner products. I use this in my detail bay and it shines like armorall but it isn't greasy because it has a non-silicone base and it is also water base. As armorall is oil base. It also cleans as well, it doesn't just glop all over your dirt and dust.

Armorall will also clean the surface a bit too well at times - aka, clean the finish / paint right off after repeated use. Search classic cars forums, they'd rather drink Armorall then use it on their cars.

I was at a car show with the Miata and a Meguiar's rep was handing out samples of their EXTRA all surface cleaner. Gave a few packs to my son-in-law he said it did a great job cleaning up the marks on his F150.

I'm not a fan of ArmorAll products but their Multi-purpose cleaner seems to be a good product. Really did a nice job cleaning up the interior of an old 88 Festiva I was selling a few years back.

Plexus is what Armor All wishes it was.

This can be found at any decent motorcycle shop. Honda makes their own as well, in case you don't find it straight away. It comes in an aerosol can. Spray on, wipe with a cloth, NOT paper towel. It won't 'fill' scratches, but makes things much less noticeable looks really good and clean. It dries with no residue, no odor and it doesn't attract dust or create static electricity. It leaves a 'factory' look, if you know what I mean.

To give you an idea of how clear it wipes/dries, I use it on my helmet faceshields so I can see. I use it on virtually any plastic surface and simply swear by it.

For those scratches that have turned 'white', as plastic will do when really scuffed, I've had good luck with this:

It says for rubber - but read the can. Spray a very thin layer of this on and those white scratches go by by.

Gotta agree on this one. I used Armorall in my old Honda and it did a great job of taking some of the finish off, denoted by the discoloration of the towel I used to wipe with. I wasn't too concerned with that car.

I can vouch for how shit Armorall is. I used it on my old Skyline and it just sucked the colour out of the black plastic dash. It gave the surface a dull grey washed look. I'll only use Meguires on any of my cars now.
