Perhaps the question is not what to clean with but why.

Remember mud is the ultimate Jeep accessory!

Armorall is a start but it does not last long. I may try my vinyl convertible top conditioner next time on my bumper and flares.

How is Armor-All bad? I've used it for over 20 years without an issue.
You're not the first person I've heard say that, but no one seems to know why.

Soap, water, towel off, Armor-all.

Dust and dirt tend to stick to Armor All. I have also noticed that areas treated with it tend to cook (for lack of a better term) faster from the sun. I hate using it on my Jeep. Mothers has a full line of products that will get the results you want. Of course you have to realize that I am not into shiny on anything but the paint when it comes to my Jeep.

I rubbed my faded stock bumpers down with a Armor All wipe a month or two ago and it made it look brand new
