Could it be from a girl with artificial tanning lotion on? Maybe she sat there a second or two on her knees and jumped up. I had this happen on my new seats and it was a pain to get it off. The first time I removed it, it came back??? I just assumed I had lightened it enough so I couldn't see it anymore until I came back the next day, but there could be some kind of activator that darkens over time.

I believe I used a magic eraser to remove the final bits but it was within a day or two of the stain.

Good luck

Someone posted along these lines before saying they had to pull back the skin and clean from behind!:o I am sure someone on here can update that story.

Have you tryed Tough Stuff and a Med Brissle brush. I used it on my last boat when the dealer left it in the rain all winter. Worked great. Don't be afraid to put some elbow grese in it.

This came in a flyer I got with my owners manual so it should be safe to use.......1 tablespoon of ammonia, one quarter (1/4) cup of hydrogen peroxide, three fourths (3/4) cup of water. Rinse and dry after application. You can check out their web site at www.marinespecialtiesgroup.com or phone 800-247-9901. Hope it works good luck.

IRRC, Marine Specialties Group are the suppliers of the upholstery material to MC now and they naturally have an inside track on what is good to maintain marine material like theirs, which is subject to more adverse staining, spotting etc. than automotive or home fabrics.

Ditto on the H2O2(Hydrogen Peroxide) Will not attack the upholstery, stitching, carpet, etc....

My tough cleaning stain solution is a 50:50 mix of household H2O2 and Tilex brand daily shower spray(the clear stuff). The Tilex has a chelating agent(eats metals/metal ions) but does it in a ver gentle manner. This is a slow stain remover that requires the area remain saturated for days on end. I'll cover an area with a rag then soak it and cover with plastic I'll also keep re-wetting it.

Might work, won't harm! I've gotten some pretty nasty stuff out that way.

Later,

Matt

i have the same stains on my 06 x-star, i was thinking of trying an ultraviolet lamp for an extented period.
It's a micro organism making its home in the vinyl, your not going to be able to scrub it out, so the only way to not see the micro organisms, is to change the color of them.

Trickskier,

Have you by chance taken any recent chemistry classes? :D

Isn't ultraviolet the same as a black light - easily available at your local "head shop", oh wait, they don't have those anymore...

Yeah they do, they are just adult novelty stores now.

Try spencers at the mall for a blacklight.

I was told by a MC mechanic to use GoJo hand cleaner and rub it in then rinse. It's helped on some stains, but not all. Please test it first just in case.
Good luck!

Sun damage = UV rays

The UV breaks down the chemical bonds linking the polymers together. I'd keep looking for something else before doing that!
