Q: What's the best way to get my car clean without harming the paint?

Posted: 5th September 2012

A: The first step in paint care is removing loose dirt with a good car wash. Avoid dishwashing detergents, which may strip wax and can leave a film on the surface, making it difficult for a protective coating to adhere to the paint.

Instead, use a specialist car wash solution, like ARMOR ALL® Car Wash, ARMOR ALL® Wash & Wax, ARMOR ALL® Heavy Duty Car Wash or for a gel formula try ARMOR ALL® New Car Gel.

Q: How do I avoid getting ARMOR ALL® Protectant on my windows when I'm protecting my car's interior?

Posted: 5th September 2012

A: To avoid over spray of ARMOR ALL® Protectant onto glass, spray directly onto a cloth (cotton & terry cloth work best) and wipe.

Another great option for touch ups or avoiding over spray is ARMOR ALL® Protectant Wipes.

Q: Once I use ARMOR ALL® Protectant, do I have to use it as long as I have the car?

Posted: 5th September 2012

A: No. Regular use of ARMOR ALL® Protectant will help to keep the surface looking like new; but it is impossible for vinyl, rubber or plastic to become “addicted” to Protectant. So discontinuing use will not harm the surfaces. The surface is simply unprotected.

Q: How can I protect my dash without leaving a glossy shine?

Posted: 5th September 2012

Q: If the vinyl, plastic or rubber surfaces inside my car are already faded or cracked, will protectant help?

Posted: 5th September 2012

A: While regular use of ARMOR ALL® Protectant can help forestall additional deterioration and improve appearance, it won’t repair the existing damage.

Q: How can I protect my cars expensive leather interior?

Posted: 5th September 2012

A: To quickly and easily clean and protect a leather interior, use ARMOR ALL® Protectant Leather, which cleans, conditions, preserves and moisturizes leather in one step.

Q: It's been rumoured that protectants cause your dash to crack. Is this true?

Posted: 5th September 2012

A: This is NOT true. Protectants can help protect your car from the elements that can cause your dash to fade and your tyres to crack. Surfaces can’t become “addicted” to protectants, and damage is a result of neglect, not use. Using a protectant regularly – especially one with UV protection – can help keep your dash looking great for years.
