Fishy Facts: Avoid the Silicon Nightmare

When cleaning and protecting your vehicle’s interior vinyl and rubber, try to avoid the use of products containing silicon.

Using silicon products can make any future paint work a virtual nightmare. Surfaces that have been impregnated with silicon will cause paint to be repelled, causing small round paint blemishes called fish eyes.

You can find a large number of non-silicon products on the shelves of any car care product retailer.

If you prefer old fashioned remedies, wiping down your vinyl and rubber with baby oil does a wonderful job. Baby oil will leave a slightly greasy feeling that will disappear shortly after it is applied.
