Interior Detailing

What are some products Tesla owners use on their interiors? The center console and door armrest are high touch areas so it seems like going with something that is matte overall would have the most visual consistency. It also seems like part of the door may be leather and some vinyl. Do most use different products for different parts of the door?

Thanks in advance.
 
For general interior cleaning Optimum No Rinse(ONR) is one of the most versatile and safe options. Diluted at 256/1, ONR’s soy based polymers will Clean effectively, with a neutral PH, so no damage to any surface. As an added bonus it’s probably the best glass cleaner you will ever use.

For the interior? I use ONR for the exterior (my car has ceramic coating).

I agree with all the Opticoat folks. Use ONR as my detailing solution as well as my exterior / interior washing solution. I will also sometimes use 1ZEinsett Cockpit Premium with microfiber towel on the interior.

Two years after getting Opticoat Pro+ applied after full paint correction, my car is pristine. I swear by this stuff.

I was hesitant to use ONR at first but I love it for washing. I actually have a bottle sprayer that has ONR in it right now.

Does ONR have a shelf life when in a bottle?

For Interior I use this...

Interior Detailer

Smart Polish Pro Interior Detailer. It works great. I use it all over the interior. The seats + the back of the seats themselves, the dashboard, both screens, the doors, works like a charm. Eco friendly, no harsh chemicals, safe to use all over the interior. Good price too and lasts a good while.

It really makes things simple. I can't phantom the idea of having multiple products for multiple parts of the interior.
 
I love ONR for the exterior. Never considered it for the interior though; mainly because the owner's manual says to generally use warm water and maybe soap for the vegan seats. I mainly just use water since that's always recommended by the manufacturer of my window tint.
Optimum No Rinse(ONR) is soy based , and safe on all surfaces including tinted windows. In my Detailing shops we have been using it for 10 years now.
 
Fat or oily creams/conditioners are only needed on worn leather or leather before the 90s. All automotive leather, at least Tesla's leather, has a clear coat which don't absorb fat or water. Therefore, a sacrificial layer of e.g. SiO2 or something that bonds to new leather is important.
