How to remove dressing from dash????

1631 7
Took my 2021 Pilot to local touch-free car wash (first time). They put some ridiculously terrible coconut-scented dressing on my front dash. I can't take it - drove home with windows down but it is still very much there.

Any suggestions on how to remove whatever it is they put on it? It must have been like a vinyl conditioner like armor-all, except the scent is unacceptable.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for the quick replies! I also heard from another source that Dawn - "the degreaser" - should do the job. Gonna attempt shortly and I'll post the results for benefit of others.

Thanks again!

So the shiny, glossy, greasy sh%t they put on my dash has been removed using Dawn and warm water, but much of the smell remains. Hoping that's just a little residual and will subside in a couple of days.

The smell has probably permeated into the upholstery, leave the windows open and it should go away.

And a bit of Rum, Pina-Coladas anyone?
