Default Vinyl cleaner???

What do you use to clean your vinyl. I just got my seats re-done, and there is a lot of white. I know it will be hard to keep clean. Thanks!

Default sun tan lotion

Believe it or not I got octane booster all over my white interior last summer. I mean allllllll over it. The so and so bottle had a crack in it. I shook it up and it went everywhere.
I tried everything. My girlfriend tried some suntan lotion on the stains. I guess between the sun and the lotion the stains got sucked up. The oil base octane booster was gone by the weekend. The craziest thing I have ever seen as far as cleaning goes.

I just finished using spray nine and followed up with 3M - Marine Vinyl Cleaner & Restorer

I too have a lot of white and the seats look great! I had a ton of mildew and stains from last year...now they are all gone...

ya that worked for me on my trade in it was real clean the dealer
was impressed on how clean it was,
I used a brush too, gets the grain clean but dont leave it on to long it dries out the vinyl, the conditioner/protectant will
fix that though.

Thumbs up Great stuff

I second the 3M - Marine Vinyl Cleaner & Restorer. I used it for the first time last fall when I put the boat away and it sat all winter and the upholstery is still looking good! It's definately my new treatment to stand by.

I use Clorox cleaner with bleach. Be careful where and what you spray it on but it sure does make the vinyl pure white with little effort. Then I use Meguires vinyl protectant.

I found that Goop with Lanolin gets stains out and moisturizes as well. Then I hit it with the Meguires.
