Headliner material

Does anyone know what material our headliner is? Leather or some kind of fake plastic leather? I was going to wipe it down yesterday with some leather cleaner but I didn't want to ruin it if it's not leather. What do you guys use to clean yours?

Re: Headliner material

the headliner is a cheap vinyl-plastic non porous material. You can use anything to clean it. Windex does work nicely though. I think you went overboard if you actually bought a leather cleaner to clean the cheap headliner that plagues all our cars. Simple products found around the house will work like a charm.

Re: Headliner material

i know you're talking about cleaning the headliner, but does anyone else think the roof of our cars give absolutely no insulation from the texas heat? i feel like i have to keep the ac on at least two or else i will suffer the wrath of del sol. like, the cabin doesn't stay cold without constant ac pumping in cold air.

Re: Headliner material

Well cheap or not I think it looks nice lol :) Thanks guys, so normal interior cleaning products would be fine? What about the leather arm rests and that little part that's leather on the door trim, leather or more fake leather?

And I think any car need's the ac pumping cold air here in Texas lol. I usually have it on 1 cause my car is in the garage but when I get in the car from coming out from walmart or something I usually have to use 3 then go down to 2.

Don't use any of the cheap interior products. Probably the only product to use that's somewhat readily available is vinylex, it's a lexol product. The reason I say this is, it's not silicone based. It doesn't make the surfaces shiny and greasy. Here's another thing the products with a shine to them cause the interior to become hotter and more prone to cracking, because more likely than not they aren't feeding the material or protecting them.

The lexol product does that. I learned this already.

I use lexol to clean and condition my leather seats and I use meguires to clean my interior.

92-95 and 96-01 civics do have basically the same cheap headliner as ours. It wasnt until after those years that honda went with more of a cloth/faux suede material which is alot nicer but also alot harder to clean. And nothing in the prelude besides having actual leather seats, is leather in the car. Not even the armrests on the doors, nothing..

Re: Headliner material

I'd prefer our headliner then a suede material any kind of stain and it's in there our's would just wipe off. Especially since our cars are really low cut I tend to hit my head on the top luckily I don't use gel but if someone did with sude thats a nasty mess :(

The shift knob on the Sh,yes thats real leather. The steering wheel on the other hand, maybe but very doubtful. Its more of a faux leather than real leather. It has more of a vinyl/rubber feeling to it than other cars ive driven with real leather wheels. Theirs nothing really wrong with this. This is just one of the ways honda keeps its fleet of cars affordable.

Re: Headliner material

The meguires products will cause the exact bad side effects that I've described in my previous post. Use a better product on your interior. Vinylex, like I said is going to be a better product for the interior in general. You use lexol leather feed/cleaner for the leather materials of course, but the dash, door panels, and things like the headliner, all call for a different and better product than any consumer grade meguires product.

Re: Headliner material

If your really into your car then use good products. i'm not too worried so i don't spend money for good stuff. although i don't go cheap when it comes to wax.

Not saying it will cause problems, I'm saying it's not doing the best job and there are better items out there.
