Autoglym Vinyl & Rubber Care
The smell of clean!
This product has a slightly citrus scent to it which makes me to believe it is an "orange" type of cleaner. It smells wonderfully and does a nice task at cleaning stains on the dash and rubber-plastic areas.
Caution- Do not work this into your leather as I found it stained my beige leather seats when trying to remove a tough blue jean dye that the leather cleaner did not get out.
I wipe down my interior once a week to collect dust, and apply vinyl cleaner every month to a new finish.

Safe to say this product performs as promised - brings up rubber and vinyl just lovely .
The unique thing for me was how far it goes -a dab on the end of a small smooth sponge went for many feet of trim and left a clear gloss somewhere in between McGuire's (mat) and Armour-all (where's my sunglasses.)with a single application.

Great for interior and exterior trim
I don't normally put products on my dash and such, but this product does not leave a glossy/greasy film that gets all over your hands and everything else. It is best applied with a small foam applicator pad and buffed off with a good microfiber cloth. The result will be a perfectly detailed interior that looks great, is resistant to dust and uv rays....and it lasts a long time, especially if your vehicles are garaged. The scent is a very mild citrus smell that does not linger, unlike some other products that smell like cherries or bubble gum.
This product also works great on tonneau covers too!

Versatility in a lightly scented package
I managed to snag Autoglym Vinyl and Rubber Care while it was on sale and I am absolutely satisfied with it.
Application was very easy, the liquid itself is a milky white colour so seeing where you've applied it is clear. You can achieve a varied degree of shine, anything from matte to pretty glossy. It's nice to have the option between the two.
I find that the anti-static coating works quite well. It doesn't promise that you won't see any dust on your dash, but I can personally say that it has significantly reduced the amount of dust that lands on the surface by an easy 80%.
The scent is a light one that doesn't linger for too long, it's a lemony smell that lasts for about a couple of days depending on how much you use and how you use your car afterwards.
I found that this product has deepened the colour on the surface applied by a tiny bit. It's nice, it reminds me of when I first got my car. The wording is a little fuzzy on the back, but it says that it does protect from negative effects from long term exposure to the sun, in short I believe that this does also filter out UV rays.
Overall, it's a sophisticated package in that it doesn't cause your dash to shine like a mirror and smell like oranges for a month. It gives you the option on how much shine you want. It freshens up the air for a bit, but doesn't over power your nose, and lastly it keeps MOST of the dust off your dash. Longevity wise, I'm at a week and a half after application and it still looks brand new.

If you're looking for a deep shine, then stick with Armor all. But if you're tired of seeing the dash on your windshield then go with this.
This product will leave a nice clean surface, but wont shine much unless you spend 5 min buffing the surface. The smell is okay.. although I'm little tired of citrus-scented products. It also claims to have an anti-static protection, however, when I pulled out a Kleenex, the dash acted like a magnet to the dust.

Matte or Shine
I enjoy this product- nice scent- depending on how you apply the product you can have an matte finish or a shiney one.
It seems to last a long time ( longer than other products i have used) applied it 3 months ago and it still looks great. It gave some life back to my old truck's interior.

I have tried many different vinyl and rubber care products and this one is by far the best. It doesn't leave a greasy or slippery finish, smells really nice, and seems to get right in the vinyle. I also used it to get rid of annoying white wax residue on the outside of my vehicle (rubber and plastic parts). This product is worth the extra couple of dollars.
