Question Protectant or VLR?

I've slowly been converting all my auto care products over to Mother's products. I've been using the VLR on my seats and counsel and Meguires Natural Shine on my dash. Well the Meguires finally ran out which leads to my question. Being that my dash and door panels consist of vinyl, plastic and some leather, I know that VLR would work just fine. However, I'm left wondering if Mother's Protectant would be a more suitable choice for the vinyl/plastic dash due to its UV protection capabilities? Should I use the VLR and then follow up with the Protectant or just use one product solely?

VLR would would be recommended as it cleans and conditions as well as protects.

A dedicated protectant, Protectant gives the best UV protection, and is fine for the dash that is considered a non-contact surface.

And yes, VLR topped with Protectant is a good idea.

Cool, I will proceed to use VLR on the dash followed by Protectant for added UV protection.

Thanks for the quick response.

I agree. This is a great combo. I use it myself when it's time to clean up the interior. If you want to save a little money you can pick up the M Tech protectant at Autozone as it is the same product at a lesser price. Can't beat that.

If you don't already have it, I would recommend the leather wash and leather cream for the leather interior. Both work great.

Is VLR safe on unclear hard plastics such as woodgrain, plastic speedometer housing, the inside door handles, cd player, badges and trims, chrome peices, ect.. can VLR be used to polish and protect other plastic items as well and make them look nice. Is it good for plastics. because it is Vynel,Leather,Rubber and it doesn't mention plastic.. thank you.
