Is there a product recommended for cleaning aluminum interior on newer airstreams.

We would also be interested in recommendations. Someone told me Pledge and that just made a greasy mess. Some friends told us they use Costco (Kirkland) brand window cleaner but we've been hesitant to use that until we know it won't harm the clear coat finish.

Just a simple, slightly damp, good quality microfiber cloth on the interior skin does just fine for us. Try this first.

I use a Swifter for general Dusting and car detailing spray for a good cleaning.

Windex is great. If you want something multi-purpose, safe and streakfree hit a Trader Joe's and buy their multi purpose spray cleaner (hand trigger). It is great stuff.

I use Pledge Multi Surface spray cleaner. Use it to clean everything in the interior. It's recommended in the AS owner's manual and it works great.

Simple Green aircraft cleaner. It's non toxic and it's clear so no color transfer. This is what is used on high end airplanes.

I use the pledge multi surface wipes. They come in a flat resealable soft pack. Take up very little room. Don't spray, so no overspray. No aerosol fumes. Work on the ultra leather, aluminum, sink, stovetop, and cabinets.

I found a great bathroom cleaner that is by clorox. Sheets that have cleaner in them, but are dry. You wet them to activate the cleaner. So nothing to spill. Great for the shower walls and floor, door, sink, toilet, and bathroom floor. Clorox Scrub Singles. I found at my grocery store, and also amazon
