Dashboard cleaner

What's a good dashboard cleaner for both the hard plastic and the soft vinyl part on top? I'm looking for something other than mild soap with warm water. Would Aerospace 303 multipurpose cleaner be safe and effective? The vinyl on my dash is in good shape but there are some tiny little dark spots on the soft vinyl. I can't tell if they are dirty spots are maybe some areas where the color has faded to dark. I tried a light cleaning with just warm water and some of the spots did seem to vanish when I rubbed them a bit. Also what do you use on the Flexsteel ultraleather seats? Anyone use Lexol cleaner and conditioner? Great stuff on leather but I understand this is not real leather.

I just cleaned the seats, dash and carpet on mine and used a product I picked up at DOLLAR TREE called LA AWSOME. It is great stuff and worked great on the pleather seats (plastic leather)!

I use the 303 Protectant on all my vinyl dash area. It does a really good job of UV protection. My seats are cloth, so I don't know about the ultra leather. Would it make the seating slippery?

seat cleaner

I have a 1995 Newmar that sat for 6 years with no human contact. Well needless to say fax leather seats were awful and needed replacing. I was told to try Dove bar soap and rub it in. Well, I did and the seat look close to new. After cleaning, a good leather preserver /cleaner is used. Use lots of elbow grease.

Not sure the 303 protectant would be used as the cleaner. For protection once it's cleaned for sure. I have some of the dollar store Awesome but not sure how safe it would be on soft surfaces like vinyl dash or the Ultraleather. Might be over thinking it.
