Clorox cleaner with bleach does wonders on vinyl.

I agree with Daze. I use Simple Green. It is not abrasive. If you use any cleaner with bleach, MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT ALLOW IT TO COME INTO CONTACT WITH THE STICHING!!!!!!! BLEACH WILL IN TIME EAT THE STICHING AWAY. THEN, YOU WILL BE LOOKING FOR UPHOLSTERY REPAIRS!!!!!!

I use Simple Green. I believe that most of these cleaners will strip off some of the vinyl protectants that were put on by the manufacturer. I find that it stays clean longer if I follow up with a vinyl conditioner or cleaner/conditioner. I usually use Macquires (sp?).

SImple green also does a lot of the work for you if you just let it sit there for a few minutes. Spray on, scrub lightly to spread it around evenly, wait 5 minutes, scrub, wash off.

BURNMAZZ, I would be cautious of soft scrub with bleach. It is abrasive and will leave the vinyl open to harmful UV rays. I have a friend who used soft scrub w/bleach on his sunpad and seats, after a few years he had to have everything re-done becuase the seams and stitching were eaten away because of the bleach content. Vinyl/Upholstery repair place said do not use bleach as an vinyl cleaner when exposed to the sun.

Hey, its your boat, but I just wanted you to know this. If you do use soft scrub w/bleach I would make sure you rinse with water.
