    What is a good recommendation to wipe down the interior of a 2017 Tundra TSS?

    Plastic or leather?
    I use 303 for all the plastic. I havent had to really clean the leather, I just hit it with a dry microfiber to get the dust.

    The market is huge for interior cleaners/protectants. We use Meguiar's interior matte finish cleaner/protectant, and 303 as well. Just stay away from silicone based protectants, they tend to dry out and break down the interior finishes, no matter what kind of car.

    Can someone recommend a decent foam cannon? I was looking at the Chemical Guys TORQ one, but that price... is it that much better than the other brands that are a 1/3 the price?

    Amazon has some but I haven't used those. There are some detailing sites starting to offer Spring Sales so you may want to look around.

    I ordered the Fasmov one for like $17 from Amazon. When I use it I will post about it.

    I've shopped around... just concerned about the quality. I'm willing to part with the cost for the TORQ one, if that price is justified by a tangible quality difference.

    You can buy the microfiber towels at the box stores for using 303.
    As far as Tire applicators for Wax Addict product...
    https://www.carpro-us.com/wheels-trim/waxaddict-tyre-applicator/ Or, you can pick up the Eagle one type applicators at the box stores.
    Wax removal...
    https://www.theragcompany.com/value-bundle-eagle-edgeless-16-x-16-microfiber-towel-5-pack/
    These are also good for detail sprays too.
    These I also like because sometimes the shorter nap does the trick...
    https://www.theragcompany.com/the-wizard-16-x-16-premium-plush-microfiber-polishing-towel/

    I always wash my towels before using in warm to hot water, no soft water or fabric softeners. When drying low or no heat and no fabric sheets.
    There is a detergent made for microfibers.

    I know this is an older post but I was reading back through the thread and saw this. I agree this tool makes cleaning your windshield much easier but I add a step to my process. Before applying my favorite window cleaner (invisiglass), I clean the window with a damp magic eraser. The eraser gets all the haze and oily residue from the gas exchange of the interior plastics. Once you clean it with the magic eraser, dry the glass and then clean it with the microfiber tool and glass cleaner. You'll be amazed with the results.
