How do you keep your black interior door panels looking good? Mine always seem to attract dust or something that makes them look a bit dirty.

Do you use any specific cleaner/conditioner - sort of an equivalent to what you may apply to your tires to make them look black and nicer. Just looking for something that someone else with a Black interior model S has tried and is satisfied with.

Oh man, Water and clean cloth! Kinda boring, but it works great.
Tried that already and it lasts only as long as you do it every single time you drive the car lol. Don't know what it is about that surface that attracts stains so much. On my previous car with a black leather interior ( Lexus GS400), I never had this issue.

303 Aerospace protectant is pretty good. It’s the least shiny protectant I’ve found. Having said that, I don’t use it on my interior as I’m not a fan of any shininess at all. However, I use the 303 multi purpose cleaner to clean up all the interior scuffs and stains.

Damp towel and a bit of diluted Simple Green works great to remove any dirt, grease, etc. without leaving any chemicals or residue. PS-lemon variety smells better. Good for the dash and non-leather seats too.

Mine is a 2016 when Tesla still had leather seats in the S & X


As always...... I know nothing !!!! LOL

I've always used 303 for cleaning and keeping everything looking clean for Leather. (I was going to say Pleather, since that's what most automotive leather really is, but I didn't want to be wrong again. Just in case.)

I second the COSTCO microfiber for the vinyl black interior bits. Recently tried Meguirs Interior detailer, seems to work with no side effects to date. Reason being it states "Safe for all surfaces"
I have also been using it on the second Gen leather seats.
