I only use a water soaked black rag. Any lint left behind is hard to see, assuming the interior is black/grey.

I agree with iamz - I don't like armor all because of how easy it is to get that stuff in the wrong places and the damage it ends up doing.

Wet rags work great for wiping down the interior - best if you give it a good wipedown on a regular basis

I just use water too. I don't like the smell of Armorall. My new vinyl for my Corvair looks shinny without any Armorall, and the instructions said the vinyl manufacturer says not to use it.

I'll just dust it, damp rag if needed. Read the owners manual if that doesn't work.

Considering the absolutely horrible amount of reflection off the inside of the windshield, I'd be inclined to Armor All the dash just to force the accumulation of an extra amount of dust (on the dash) to make it less reflective :) . Or maybe I need to spray some flat black.

Armor All is evil stuff. don't use it on tires because it makes them slippery and turn brown. don't use it on the dash because it makes it shiny and makes for distracting reflections on the windscreen.

Woolite solution does wonders for cleaning the interior.

I use Armor All on my 97 Escort for the shine, but will try just water in the Fiesta. I don't want to damage it, but don't like the dust either.

I've found that the Meguire's Mirror Glaze #40 works much better than Armor All and doesn't leave the greasy residue you get with AA. Plus you get more of a factory sheen than an artificial-looking shine. It's the only product I would consider using on my Miata's top and should work great with your Fiesta.

My wife actually picked up some Meguire's Quik Interior Detailer Cleaner wipes, but after reading these responses I don't think I'll use them.

Hey that is a good idea! I also hesitate to put anything on the soft style dash. the rubbery texture hold dust like crazy! I wonder if a California Car Duster would work well like my last car.
Last night I bought a gooey gel, a putty from Walmart that I kneaded and pressed on intereior parts of the car and it really picked up EVERY speck of loose dust in all the nooks and crannies.
