Default Mothers Preserves Protectant?

Hello,

I have a '96 Accord and I was wondering if the Mothers Preserves Protectant would be ok for my "soft dash"? I don't like the shiny (Armour All) look. I just want something to clean and protect. I usually just wipe it with a barely damp towel and that's it. Any suggestions? Is this stuff good? Thank you for your help.

Preserves would be just fine for the dash.

It's a low luster formula, not shiny or oily.

I'd suggest applying it to a folded wash-cloth sized cloth, and wiping the dash, taking care not to get it on the windows or instrument panel. To lower the shine even more, buff with a clean dry towel to remove the excess and spread the product more evenly.

I tried Preserves myself and I can tell you it is very good stuff. I smells good, it gives you a little shine (trust me you don't want a lot of shine on dash - it will be reflecting into your eyes). Armor All - something I don't recomend to use - it streaks. Black Magic is "dust collector"- it's static also. Preserves is the best one.

I have used Preserves for quite a while and like it.

However Lately I have been using Mothers Duration instead, seems to look just as good and lasts many times as long, is there any disadvantage to using The Duration and can I top it with Preserves to touch up.

Thanks in advance.

Durations is a great formula, but there really is no need to top it off....Just use as directed and your tires will always look their best.

Thanks.

I don't limit its use to the tires, I use it everywhere I used Preserves, Tires, rubber trim, plastic trim, wheel wells, wipers, hoses, ect, any problem with me doing that.
