ArmorAll wipes and a clean dry cloth. Took a break to take picture, saw some spots I missed in the picture, but now it's done. Spent about 20 mins.

Looks great!

Adam's In and Out spray does a good job on the plastic pieces...

Yikes... Adam's discontinued this product...

You did it now... Your pictures are going to make me go detail my VUE under the hood now...

A couple days ago I noticed it was getting a bit dusty under the hood.

Default Re: Cleaned under the hood

Looks good. I just did my Vue two weeks ago. My only concern is that most cleaning products are petroleum based and may cause problems eventually. The non petroleum based products are very expensive.

I cleaned under the hood of every car thats come to live here. This is under the hood of my 2001 SL2, (had for 7 years) the only thing I noticed from cleaning it with ArmorAll or ArmorAll wipes and a dry cloth is it was always clean. Nothing cracked, broke, or fell off because I cleaned it.

You just spray and wipe everything under the hood down with ArmorAll and wipe it clean? It stays looking good even from the heat?

I used to use spray, then I tryed the wipes and like them much better. The key to all of it is to wipe & polish off the residue with a clean dry cloth. Yes it stays looking good evan with the added 100* temps here in Arizona.
