Best way to clean this?

This is probably the only gripe I have with the F30 interior. The plastic gets this dirty gummy grime and I don't know how to properly clean it.

Any pointers?

I use this on my interior:
https://www.amazon.com/TriNova-Plast...=trinova&psc=1

It's marketed as a trim restorer, I found it restores all the interior surfaces to like new condition.

Positive. The dirt will move around when I try to wipe it off. I end up just wiping it into a different place on the dash

If it is dirt I would use a very mild APC cleaner and a softish bristle brush to agitate. Then should be just a case of wiping off with a clean microfiber.

Like Kevin just said. Some all purpose cleaner like Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day diluted down to 5:1 and a soft brush will do the trick. You can find it at Target.

You can use the gyeon Vinyl cleaner or the swissvax plastic cleaner in combination with a detailer brush.. They are both good products

Griots Interior Detailer and a nice microfiber cloth will take care of that.
