I just wipe it down with a wet MF every week so don't really have to use anything else.

Werd!! I have had the same gallon container for over 2 years!! It just takes a little to mix with water and it goes a long way. I use it for cleaning my door/trunk/hood jams and for my dash and other plastic interior panels.

lol, I don't detail them, just wipe them down with some towels. It's not like I'm entering the car in a concours event.

Simple Green (non auto) can and will dry out rubber gaskets; be careful with it unless highly diluted. Just an fyi. The auto stuff won't.

I personally use a spray wax (in my case, Optimum Car Wax) on door jambs. Easy, quick, looks good, profit.

Shim; I'm still going to reply to your thread about pricing, sorry for the delay.
