Magic Eraser followed by a conditioner right away. Be careful not to use it too much.... it'll deteriorate the threads. I found hula boat care's interior cleaner t be great for quick cleaning before going out and minor touch ups.

Be careful with the 303 protectant on carbon fiber vinyl. The chemicals react with grays and silvers and cause them to fade to a peach color. Unfortunately I found this out first hand. It turns out to be a known problem amongst some circles, just not the one I was in at the time

I also use the eraser, but they dont seem to last all that long.


I buy Simple Green by the gallon. I keep two mixed spray bottles on hand for cleaning. I mix it 50/50 for cleaning under the hatch, and dilute it to about 25/75 for cleaning the interior. It's environmentally friendly, super cheap, and works great. Not to mention it works great on just about everything (if mixed accordingly).

I use SG a lot too. I mix it 5:1, or sometimes even 10:1.

BioKleen Amazing and a Magic Eraser for the tough spots. Then I use the BioKleen Amazing Vinyl protectant. The Amazing will clean ALL surfaces.

And Dollar Store "Awesome" for the routine cleaning.

Cleaner and Protectant......Its like top coating your interior with original Armour All (but not quite that shiny) but if you rub it the Armour all will easily take off any dirt or stain you come across.....cleaning and top coating is a one step process...your done the whole interior in a few minutes and it looks amazing....not too greasy at all, UV protectant too....love it

Leverage seems to be the best cleaner I have found(I use the magic erasers with this). However, its pretty expensive and you need to ship it in. If I run out, I use 3M vinyl cleaner...it seems to be better than the others I have tried(Meguiers, west marine).
