Olive oil is a liquid fat obtained from olives, a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean Basin, produced by pressing whole olives and extracting the oil. It is commonly used in cooking, for frying foods or as a salad dressing. It is also used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and soaps, and as a fuel for traditional oil lamps, and has additional uses in some religions. The olive is one of three core food plants in Mediterranean cuisine; the other two are wheat and grapes. Olive trees have been grown around the Mediterranean since the 8th millennium BC.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the fresh juice that is squeezed directly from the olive fruit. The better the quality of the olive fruit, and faster the juice is squeezed, the higher the quality of the oil produced.

I would not be doing this.
It would result in a sticky mess.

I am also wondering about our new members other posts as well concerning itching.

 Rob, perhaps he is one that truly lives the life of a "Bushy" - I have a neighbor that lives off-grid and she makes all sorts of useful household cleaning products and medicinal cures (that work) from sundry plants, berries and roots. The olive oil would restore the dash, of course it would then need to be polished off. Think of boot polish and Dubbin that we use on saddlery.

It soaks in & provides a shiny finish,not worried about dust,a dry rag wipes it off.Olive oil is all rounder- not only restricted to cooking.

I spray the bowl of the cassette toilet to make it slippery and the seals to preserve them.  I just use a aerosol of olive oil. Works well

I'll try a section of the interior trim.

I used to restore classic motorcyles, and all the old plastic and vinyl parts, I used to rub smooth peanut butter into them. 

Leave them for an hour and polish them up.
