cleaning the leatherette

We are back (way to early) from our first efforts at being snowbirds. After living in the motor home for 8 weeks, we have a little cleaning to do. The drivers and navigators seats along with the couch are vinyl. What products are people using to clean these surfaces? A friend suggested using Armor All, but I am not keen on sliding around in my seat....

If you like sitting on a slip and slide dont. I'm still trying to find just the right product also.

All I use is warm water with a little liquid soap in a small bowl. That has done it for me so far.
I also use it on the dash and steering wheel.

Clean it with whatever upholstery cleaner you can find and then spray them with 303 Aerospace Protectant. As a mater of fact, spray 303 on everything vinyl, rubber, plastic if you want them to stay pretty and flexible.

Ditto on the 303. I use it on the fiber glass roof all the way down to the tires and everything in between. I use Murphy's Oil Soap to wash inside and out as it is mild and doesn't dry things out. I also use the 303 on the seats and dash.

The 303 also does a pretty good job of cleaning the seats, as well.

I use a microfiber mitt on the dash, seats, and dinette table, and wash it out in a bucket of water with dish soap when it needs it.

Never put rags with 303 on them in the washing machine! It will take about three loads to get the 303 out!

Don't ask how I know!
