All,

I live in Northern VA, aka Pollen HELL.

After two weeks of driving topless I have the green smudge all over the interior. I thought to use the good old Armor All wipes. NO DICE. They just left pollen lines all over.

How do you all deal with cleaning this crap off all surfaces?

Thanks,

Bill

I live in central VA and normally i just get a bucket of slightly soapy water and use a microfiber rag. Dip the rag and get it wet then wipe down interior part, rinse repeat

Bought a California Duster last week for that very reason and it has worked great so far. If the pollen gets wet, then probably not so much.

...this....^^

I swear it seems as if I had a tree completely explode over my Jeep last weekend...pollen and pine guts were everywhere!....

Nothing fancy needed...I've tried a leaf blower, that sort of works...gets at least some of it out. Shop vac, then just plain old soap and water and a lot of rinse cycles does it....

If you've ever removed grout haze from a tile floor, it's a similar process...

Leaf Blower...... Send it back where it came from!
This!^
Or if you've got an air compressor, a blow gun works even better. I open both doors, blow dirt from one side, to the other, and out the door. This works good on everyday cleaning. This is the first thing they do at the dealer my buddy works at, when they start to detail a trade in.

This with a 1/2 cup of Ammonia. Works great for breaking down the grains that get caught in the fiber. Also great if you have allergies to pollen. Won't ruin your fabric like bleach or other harsh chemicals.

I've used one of these for years for pollen as well as trail dust. Better to blow it off than rub it in. Also works for 1st stage drying before chamois. I have this specific one. The small electric or gas handhelds don't cut it.
