OK,,,I pulled my Boat out of the Shed yesterday, and on the Head-rest of my Bolster Seat , is 4 or 5 little Brownish Redish looking spots!!!! I have know idea what it is or where it came from, unless its Wood Bee POOP!!! I Scrubbed with Soap and Water,, no luck,,, I used Simple Green and Black Streak Remover,,,Naada!!!

Try some soft scrub w/bleach. Rub very lightly. I had a bird crap on my boat. Wiped a way the mess and it left a lime green stain that would not come off!!! The wife came out with Soft Scrub....to my horror.....NOT ON THE GELCOAT I said but since she does pay for the boat i let her try and .....WAA LAA!! Nice and clean and no scratches . Hope it works on the vinyl.

Hey R,,, I hate to sound like a Dumb A$$ , But what is Soft Scrub,, a Cleaner?? Mama probably knows but she's still in Bed, And I ain't waken her!!! Do think straight Bleach would work?? Its on the very Top, so there is no stiching close..

This will sound odd, but try a cleaner wax. It has taken out all kinds of stains in my vinyl that conventional cleaners could not remove.

It's a cleaner for tubs and shiny stuff that you don't want to scratch. It's probably under your kitchen sink!!

Are you still in the auto biz?

If the soft scrub w/bleach won't scrub it off, put a drop of it on the stain and cover it with a hot/wet wash cloth and let it sit a day or two. Supposedly the water evaporating from the cloth helps to draw the stain out.

With the Soft Scrub you don't have to scrub it off just dab it on. I tend to be a little impatiant so waiting for a day or two drive me nuts!!
