talked to a guy that details yachts up here, and he said he knows exactly what type stains i'm talking about....and nothing will take them out. Except.....UV light! he said just set it outside and over the course of a few days or weeks, they should eventually fade out. until then i'm screwed. damn! Now if i could just buy some sunshine!!!!!!!!!!!! raining today.

That is what I was going to say. You have plenty of cleaners that you have already applied. You could try some Clorox Clean Up as well. Spray it, wipe lightly and then let the sun do the rest. They will bleach out with time.

Thats the ticket...had ink pen marks on a white seat; nothing would touch it; a few days in the sun = gone.

Take them to an indoor tanning salon and buy your seats a 1 day membership.

+1!!! I'll get yellow stains from pollen, etc and yellow/green stains from some type of insect. No cleaner I have tried takes it off but one day on the water in the sun and they're always gone.

These stains have been there almost a month, and probaly have seen30-40hrs of sitting in the sun prior to today. Nothing so far. But, the sun just broke out, and i uncovered her and then put soft scrub w/bleach on every inch of the white vinyl on the sun pad. just leaving it sit until dark. Scary part was making sure to NOT get it onto any of the colored areas! Had to trace it with a sponge right up to the edges.....stressful!
