Need to get rid of shine/gloss

my sister spilled some juice on the center console as well as the dash (around the radio area). Panicking i stopped by the nearest store and all i could find was armor all products..... picked up the leather and cleaning wipes...cleaned out the spill. However, my center console and part of the dash has this glossy shine that is just unbearable to see. Is there anyway i can get rid of it and bring it back to normal. Also, for future reference what would be a good product to clean/protect the interior? Ive got a leather interior by the way.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Any good interior cleaner should be able to get it off, its likely the oils and silicones in wipes you used on the surface.

I'd start with Leather & Interior Cleaner diluted about 50% and a microfiber towel to clean the area.

Once its cleaned treat it with Leather & Interior Conditioner to even out the look.

Damn... I hope you don't start getting squeaky plastic noises... I had a drink in the cup holder that had a plastic top that wasn't on all the way, and as I turned, it spilt all over the gear shift and around the shift plate. I had to completely take apart the center console because the sound of dryed soda around the seams was unbearable. Good luck

I see that you are in Anaheim...you should check out West Coast Corvettes over on Kraemer, just north of La Palma. They carry Adam's products and they might even have Leather & Interior items Dylan was referring to.

Cool! If there is something that isn't on the shelf, you'll most likely have to ask the dudes behind the counter if they have more in the back.
