What do you use on interior...

I have a 2018 M4 convertible.

What can I use to clean the, it looks like, vinyl or plastic on each side of the back seat (when the top is down you more so see this material on each side of the seat)

What can I use on the dash and doors ?

I was going to use leather cleaner on all the leather, but obviously not the plastic or vinyl interior parts.

Also, what cloths do you use for each application:
leather ?
vinyl and plastic ?


Thank you.

For door and seat plastic I use two squirts of Mother's VLR on a damp microfiber cloth.

For real leather I still use Lexol cleaner and then conditioner, both diluted with a little warm water. I like to soak a micro and super-wring it out, then wipe. Quarter your rag and turn frequently so you get 8 clean sides. It's a pain not to smudge your glass with conditioner, so place some cardboard and Windex it after.
