Cleaning running boards
I wash and wax my truck, dress the tires, clean all the glass. But, the running boards never look clean. I get all the dirt off of them, but they don't shine. I have used tire foam on them. They look awesome after that. I don't use the boards but my wife and kids do. They complain because they are slippery as heck after I foam them. Any ideas on what I can use to make them shine but not slippery.

Turtle Wax total Interior Care Detailer. I use it on all exterior plastics including the plastic for the running board steps and end caps. It makes it clean looking but not glossy which means it's not as slippery.

I just came across this post again today. First, I ended up using the turtle wax extreme shield wax on the running boards. It made them shine and it was not slippery. Second, looking at the pictures of my truck sure makes me miss that color and how well it shined. No matter what I do to my new truck the silver birch paint just does note have the mirror effect that this one did.

Adams Butter Wax do great job for cleansing. Goes on easy and comes off easy and leaves a great shine.Quick Clean, Adam's Detail Spray truly best for Waterless Car Wash and Quick Spray are also good to achieve the best shine and best looking paint, well it is a process. Wash, clay bar, polish, then wax.
