1. should you use furnature polish as a wax on your car?
2. is it actually bad to use dish soap to wash your car?
3. should you use dash board protectants?
4. is it safe to use tire shinning products?
i'll answer them to the best of my knowledge.
1/ I don't know if it is safe to use a furniture polish, but it sounds pretty stupid to me. For less that $50 you can get a really good quality wax/sealant that is safe and is designed to provide maximum protection of the type of environment your car is supposed to be in.
2/ i think i read somewhere that it was bad to use dish soap as the chemicals are pretty harsh against your car. Again, there are good and cheap car wash soap available for your car. they provide additional lubrification among many other advantages. Plus the Meguiars gold class smells really good
3/ i use dash board protectants. i'm not really sure if there is any drawbacks but after around 1 year of a full blown use, i don't have any cracks or anything like that. From my personal experiance, it made my interior look soo nice and clean
4/ yes if used correctly. No it is not safe if you coat the WHOLE tire with tireshine. Pick your tire shine carefully, because when some dry up, they have a browning effect
did i pass?...i'm not a professional, don't blame me if anything happens following what i said lol
