How to remove Armor All...?

I just got my car detailed, and they slathered my black interior with Armor All. Even the leather. This is not my preferred look and feel, and I need to get it off... is there any hope?

I can't believe people are still using Armor All. There are so many better products available.

Use a damp cloth to get it off. If you want use a leather cleaner.

Best for leather is mink oil once a year.

damp cloth if that doesnt work try some diluted woolite. 1 oz in a spray bottle mixed fully with water then spray it and wipe with a damp cloth.

I agree. Wipe on, buff off. But for leather just use a leather conditioner.

Zaino Leather Cleaner and Conditioner. Great stuff! Doesn't leave a gloss and your interior will smell good for days!

That's "303 Aerospace Protectant". Probably the best general purpose vinyl/rubber conditioner out there. Buy it from any number of websites or from a marine supply store (boaters love it).

For the leather, a leather conditioner or oil.

I can't believe that any detailer would use a slick silicone on your leather seating. What did they use on the steering wheel and shifter?
