... looking at the G6 Dash this morning and it appears to me that just a good prtectant or damp cloth might be all that is needed

I currently use Meguiars wipes...I have used the Mothers before and didn't care for them...DON'T USE ARMORALL!!!...it dries up your dash..it looks good but is very bad for your car.

I have used ArmorAll for over 20 years and have never had a problem!

Really? I say that because of the numberous people that do detailing that I have talked to say that it does (dry out dashes)...personally I haven't used Armorall more than a handfull of times. None the less thankyou for the info...it's always nice to hear everyone's opinion (have to stay subjective and all).

I once used armorall on the dash of my 1969 Lincoln Continental when I used to detail cars semiprofessionally, & the end result was that it dried it out enough so that when the sun contacted the dash, it cracked it BIG TIME!
Never again... dampen a rag with water. That's my two cents...

Armor All actually just puts a shine on the surface, but in doing this also sucks the chemicals out of the dash and other surfaces, drying them out and eventually cracking. Best thing is use a mild cleaner or damp rag, then use a light protectant (I use Meguiar's) and dust off any particles with a moiicrofiber cloth.

Over time, armor all on MOST vehicles will be harmful to whatever you put it on.
