I'm interested to hear what you guys use for some heaving staining on the vinyl. I purchased some 303 vinyl cleaner and that didn't do the trick. Neither did warm water and mild soap with a brush. Any other suggestions for removing some stubborn stains?

Its a 99 maristar. Staining is mainly where the lower seat fits under the upper wrap around. I haven't had a chance for any pics yet and I'm not cool enough to own an Iphone :-)

Magic Eraser works great, but be careful...it's kinda like sand paper.

What kind of staining? Sunlight works on the yellow and/or pink stuff.

Anyone ever try a steam mop?

This is like a second to last effort but can give some good results.


My last ditch effort to remove stains is orange pumis hand cleaner. Use a warm wet sponge and some hand cleaner. Then wash with clean warm water and follow with lots of 303.

If it is mold, the best I have used is Mold Armour, and can be bought at Menards.

Well I tried just about every product mentioned above. I finally had to resort to the magic eraser for some areas, even though I really didn't like the idea. It worked for the most part and I'm going to try sunlight for the other spots. Thanks for all the suggestions.

If it won't come out with a magic eraser and totally awesome cleaner from the dollar store and sunlight( a good day or two at the lake), it probably won't come out. Call your best vinyl repair person and have them respray it!!!

Don't use a magic eraser, it my look good in the short term but it will ruin the vinyl!
