Someone in another thread mentioned using denture whitening tablets disolved in water.

Good luck

12 years of using it will do that. I would not use it on a regular basis or as my main vinyl cleaner. I use it as needed in extreme circumstances and use 303 after.

Hey Doug,

Please try my Conditioner when you get a chance. I think there's a few threads here and I know some good before and after shots in the Leverage Photo thread.

Here's a link to a vinyl thread with pics.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Lot's of good suggestions here. Will work on it tonight and post my results. Leaning towards Mineral Spirits or shaving cream. Can I use a magic eraser with these?

Have always used 303 in the past but may be time to try some Leverage.

Thanks all

I have mildew stains on my sunpad. If I use Magic Eraser, do I need to recondition the vinyl?

If they are actual stains, I doubt the magic erasers will take them out. Yes, you should still recondition after using them.

Once cleaned to you're satisfaction, always use a good conditioner..I use Leverage, pleased with their results. Jeff

Yeah, I used Leverage to clean all the vinyl and protect it. I still have little stains that look like mildew. I don't know what to do. It actually looks like I have more stains after I cleaned the sunpad. I'm wondering if the stains were covered up with something and when I used the cleaner it took off the cover up?

Read the above posts. Something with bleach and then sun light.

Be sure to keep the harsh cleaners away from the stitching and dilute as soon as possible. You do not want to weaken the thread.
