Default cleaning inside door panels?

I'm trying to find out what anybody might be using to clean the upper inside door panels and any other textured interior surfaces. Since it's not a smooth, lint from rags or sponges gets caught in the surface. It's also hard to get it to look real black. I don't like using ArmorAll type products that leave a residue.
Any thoughts?

Well, I use paintbrush. Before you say "excuse me??", let me explain.
It gets into places a rag won't. I can get into those hard to clean places like the air vents, around the shifter plate and the console, in the crevaces of the seats (that's a hard one), etc. Usually I dust the dash towards me, because I am going to vacuum the car (and the dust) anyway. I just open the doors and dust towards the outside (to the rear) of the door and pollute the environment! LOL The best tool I have is an Ultra Shark. I got mine at Sears, and it's really powerful for it's size. There should be a brush attachment you can use for the shifter boot, and the perferated holes in the seats. I agree though, after using silicone (black magic) for years, it's hard not to use it on a car. If you have the leather, get a cleaner conditioner. If that's the package you have, you need it for mid door, and of course the seats. I love Meguires products, but choose whatever you like. Hope this helps.

BTW, I get the good ole 3 pack of brushes at home depot, I don't need to buy expensive detail ones that do a similar job.

I know that some have problems with armorall, but I use the armoral wipes that I got at costco and the armoral lether conditioner wipes and they both work great. I don't knotice any residue left over with the wipes. If I use the spray I do, though. I don't get any lint left behind as well so I think that it is the best for both worlds. And yes, a good stiff paint brush works great for those tight crevices. I still need to get a new one, old one is just way over used.
