How To Apply Interior Dressings
Instead of spraying an interior spray dressing or cleaner directly onto the surface where overspray can be a problem, instead try this technique.
Take a clean microfiber polishing cloth, foam wax applicator pad, microfiber applicator pad or even a household terry cloth wash rag and fold it at least 4-ways, (more if it's really large), and then dampen one side of it by spraying your choice of dressing or cleaner onto the cloth or applicator pad.
Now take this dampened side of your applicator cloth or pad and use it to wipe down the appropriate surfaces in your car's interior always matching the correct product to the surface to be treated. By using this technique you have precise control over product placement and avoid getting overspray onto adjacent surfaces where you may not want a dressing or a cleaner.

If you're using a foam or microfiber wax applicator pad, first bury the nozzle into the pad then inject some dressing or cleaner into the pad. Squeeze the trigger slowly and allow the liquid to penetrate into the foam. It won't take much to give you plenty to spread around. Add more as needed and keep a clean dry polishing cloth around to wipe off any excess from the surface.
Ick! Look at some of the dirt we're removing!
Time for an Interior Extreme Makeover!
Product selection is always important but just as important is the technique you use to apply the product.
(Excuse the engine grime under my fingernails, when I took these pictures I just finished removing a 4-speed transmission and a NP205 Transfercase out of the rig I'm sitting in, a 1975 GMC Jimmy. -thanks... mp)
