Default Cleaning vinyl?

Can anyone recommend a good cleaner to clean white vinyl seats and sun pad? I tried black streak remover, Attwood vinyl cleaner and Soft Scrub. The first two didn't do much. Soft Scrub did remove some of the strains but not everything.

Spray 9 with mr clean magic eraser. Usually go over it with 303 protectant when done to get the uv protection back.

I have amazing results with "awesome orange" and a green "scotch-brite"scrub pad. It gets out grease, oil, mold, mildew, and other stains. Others have good luck with "simple green" or a "mr clean magic eraser." No matter what you use to clean it make sure you treat it with a good vinyl protectant after to seal it. I use "303" marine vinyl protectant, a little pricey but it is good quality stuff and cost is offset by the dollar bottles of the cleaner. Hope this helps I am sure others with chime in there are hundreds of posts about this use the search tool.

+1 on the magic eraser followed by 303 protectant. I also use 303 vinyl cleaner and simple green.

Magic eraser with most anything works awesome however, they also remove alot of the natural oils in the vinyl so you MUST apply conditioners once clean.

Manic eraser will rot your tread away.... Use it sparingly

Is the Mr. Clean magic eraser safe to use on the colored vinyl as well? ie: the blue fountain logo stitched into my sunpad?
