CarPro Perl - Interior

Currently using CarPro Perl, like many on the forums, undiluted as tire dressing. I was curious the experiences of using it 5:1 on interior trim and/or leather? I did a quick search online, and people are claiming patchy results with residue when dry.

Never used Perl, but isnít it kinda shiny? I would get a low sheen cleaner with UV protection. Autogeek has many, but if youíre using Perl, you probably know that.

Do not use it on the interior....why do you want the interior shiny? Use an interior detailer for a matte finish that looks natural

Thanks.

I honestly didn't consider the gloss level as I thought the dilution ratio would change that. I'm currently just using Chemical Guys Colorless/Odorless leather cleaner but am open to suggestions as it's been the only thing I've used on my leather.
