I have some small spots on my interior from a tree that the boat was parked under at the boat ramp. Was not there long either. I just noticed them in the garage today.
any suggestions on what to use?

No luck on that stuff. Have to take it to a Detailer. Don't know how this happened. It was parked at the boat ramp for 15 min. I have about 20 spots on the interior. I read that heat and time also get rid of it too.

I am beside myself.

What kind of spots? Are they from some berries from the tree or sap or what? You know what kind of tree?

I bought some TA tonight and tried it on some tough stain in the grain and pores of my vinyl. I sprayed it on and wiped it with a towel a couple of times and it didn't work great. Should I be using a brush to get the deep stains out?

I think the stains are from a pine tree.
Would heating up the seats help, such as leaving the boat out in the sun for a few hours?

I talked to my MC dealer and they have a Detailer that can get the stains out. But I know it's gonna cost me $$$$$

Mr. Clean Magic Eraser has worked miracles for me. Just be careful around any threads or stitching.

yes.... a brush is absolutely necessary.

Nothing I have tried works....... Any other ideas? The seats get 303 after every use. You would think that would protect them. I guess not!

I have tried a few different approaches and then I talked to my local upholstery shop. Start with soap and water. Then move up to Lexol Vinyl Cleaner. I find the Lexol works as good as Magic Eraser without the abrasiveness. When nothing else works the upholstery guys say they use lacquer thinner, but sparingly and follow up with soap and water and vinyl treatment. Tried it on a stubborn stain that was hidden. It took it out with ease.

No damage effects on the material?

Since you've tried everything on your own, give the detailer a try. If you end up damaging the interior and you will wish you had paid the dollars to the detailer.
