Clear water and magic eraser. Over time, the chemicals will attack the threads and the vinyl. My.02 worth!
I use simple green for everything....bio degradable too so I can hose it off into my prestine lake. If it takes more than that to get it off, whatever made the mess shouldnt be on my boat.
Fantastic, the last 3 vinyl guys Ive talked to said to use it. If there is dirt deep in the grains of the vinyl I scrub it with one of those tiny plastic bristled brushes that come with a botte off GoJo hand cleaner.
Magic Erasers work well if you need an abrasive to get stains off. After its all clean use 303 on it to keep from fading.
Simple Green is too harsh for my taste for general cleaning, but good to get stains off. Swipes are better for getting out stains.
Spray Nine is eh, OK.
Magic Erasers are eh, OK. I get frustrated with them falling apart and then you have a bunch of crumbs to go clean up.
Soft Scrub is too abrasive for my taste.
I tried the Leverage Vinyl cleaner this weekend, and followed up with Fantastic and got MORE dirt off. I did follow up with the Leverage Vinyl Protectant.
Has anyone tried Roll-Off that has tried any/all of what I have tried above? So far, I have the best luck with Fantastic.
If Roll-Off is better, I will go pick up a bottle this afternoon.
I wonder if Danny can sell/bottle the cleaner solution that is in Swipes as a Vinyl Cleaner? Would it be too harsh and/or too concentrated?
Those are my thoughts, and I am open to input.
Been using Simple Green for a loooong time now.
I would only use BIO-KLEEN, I used it for the first time a few weeks back, and no joke it is the best stuff out there. They make the cleaner and the protector. I will tell everyone to use this product. It's so easy to use, don't need to wear gloves.
And the protector is awesome. Try it and let me know what you think...
Roll-Off is awesome, works great on vinyl and non-skid surfaces too! And I was just told today that Lysol Tub and Tile cleaner or Scrubbing Bubbles works really well with no bad side effects on the vinyl or stitching.
