I use the Eraser once/yr for the initial spring cleaning, immediately followed with 303. Then rest of yr use 3M's Vinyle cleaner/303.

I was using 303 cleaner on my new carbon fiber vinyl. Then follow up with 303 protectant. However I have just started using Fountain of Youth's "Cuddy Buddy" diluted 3:1. As of now I really like the Cuddy Buddy. But I haven't had a chance to use it over a long period as of yet.

Roll-Off works well, but may be a bit harsh unless diluted a bit. I have used it on real stubborn areas, but I have relaized (by slipping and falling on my a$$) if you don't rinse it well, when it does get wet, it is like being on ice. Roll Off is designed to leave a protective non-stick residue behind. This has cause me to wipe out a few times when I used it on the sunpad..... While everyone who witnessed me, falling on my own boat, foun great humor in it..... My back though otherwise
