dirty door

I have really dirty doors (inside). And i know this has probably been asking a million times. Im kinda new, and this is a lot of info to search through, so i thought i would ask my question.

They are dirty in the wrinkles. I have tried leather cleaner, Orange-Glo, Orange-Glo foam. I dont know what else to do. I would love them to look new again.
Anyone have any ideas?

I would strongly suggest you give the new "Mr. Clean Eraser" a try. Just a little water on the sponge like bar and it does an exellent job on textured surfaces. I bought it to clean walls and the ever grundgy refridgerator door handles (because that's where the beer is when coming from the garage!) and it worked like no other cleaning product.

OMG, i got one for ONE DOLLAR at Target (i work there) and it worked SOOO welllllllll.... but there is a kinda white after mark... should i just use some orange clean or leather cleaner to get rid of that?

ALSO, is there a way to get the 300D and TURBO things off the trunk? Ive noticed I have "grime" all over my car after a good wash, and i cant seem to get it out (even tried a soft bristled tooth brush). Lemme know if you have any ideas.... and carpet has a black stain in it lol, you came up with one great idea, now i need all your other ones.. lol

P.S. its my fault this car is taking so much cleaning, i didnt realize what i had until recently.. *ive owned it 2 1/2 years*

Try dental floss. Once the badges are out, the gummy residue should be easily removed with a bit of WD40, followed by waxing to restore the shine.

Some cars use double sided tape to stick the badge on, others use pins. Open the trunk and feel around for the pins that hold the badges on. If you can't find them, try the dental floss method. Get some dental floss and a hair dryer. Use the hair dryer to warm the glue up, and use the dental floss to cut the badges off. It works great.
