The Sonax (283241) Cleaner: Competitive Design and Personalized Results

A lot of other interior plastic and dashboard cleaners on the market promise like-new results, artificial “shine” (likely beyond its original shine), or that their products are safe for any plastic interior surface. However, this is just simply not the case.

All too many times have customer-owners and do-it-yourselfers found themselves caught in a bind which they’ve either made their cars interior unusually oily, greasy, damaged, or even changed the color of their interior plastics with an untrusted, or otherwise misleading product.

But, when it comes to the Sonax 283241 Dashboard Cleaner customers report a truly original, genuine dashboard and plastic interior appearance of their vehicle – in as little as one application. Also, customers have stated that very little amounts of the cleaner is necessary to really get the job done, which is very positive and likely indicates that the ingredients are concentrate.

Never the less, the Sonax vehicle interior cleaner is safe to use on various plastic surfaces and has even been designed to provide an “anti-static” effect, which means less work and dust build-up for you in the future – maximizing both performance and quality of your auto interior.

Advantages and disadvantages

  • The Sonax Dashboard cleaner sets itself apart from the competition because its proprietary ingredients ensure not only a fresh, renewed look and smell but also feel. After proper application, customers have reported a like-new feeling of their Matte finished plastic, which is a huge plus.
  • Because the Sonax Dashboard Cleaner does not use silicone or other harmful ingredients, it has been proven and verified through customers that it does indeed last longer, which also makes it a noteworthy investment for vehicle owners.
  • Interestingly enough, customers were so comfortable and confident with their Sonax Interior Cleaner that some even reported using it on their shoes, and other plastic surfaces at home which yielded equally positive results.
  • Few customers have reported that the Sonax Dashboard Cleaner does not remove glare from their dashboard. However, it’s important to keep in mind that if you have used other cleaning products, or there is already a protective sealant over your plastic interior vehicle parts, then it is likely that this “glare” so to speak cannot be effectively removed. Doing so would likely require a professional, or power tools to “buff out” such a surface sealant.

Overall, this is an excellent product for the money, it does what it’s designed to do, and really demonstrates in both performance and results that, as a cleaner, it has modernized both ingredients and surface plastic restoration capabilities and technology.
