Default Magic Eraser still the best?

I am trying to clean up the vinyl on a recently purchased boat and wanted to know if Mr. Clean's stuff is still the best. I noticed they have a more power version out to. The vinyl is just dull and dingy, just trying to get it bright white again! Any comments would be very helpful.

Magic Eraser is the best. It's saved me so much frustration, and it's the lowest effort scrubber I've found.

as good as cleaning viynyl gets. Might take several real good tries. It helps to get the boat out in the sun. I don't what the sun does to it but it seems to help.

The sun has a natural bleaching effect about it from the UV. That's how your color on the side of your boat or car or anything for that matter, will eventually start fading, or "bleaching out". But it doesn't remove dirt. Magic eraser does.

Good to see someone from Chattanooga on here! Where do you do most of your boating? We are at Erwin Marine on Chickamauga Lake. Not too many go fast boats there.

My wife swears by it, loves the stuff, can't keep her away from cleaning the vinyl But the real key is to use it with quick-n-brite, that will really get it super clean with awesome results.
