Totally awesome cleaner

I just went and bought some TA at the local Dollar Store and read on back that it needs to be diluted. What ratio does anyone use who cleans their seats with this product? I did see a 10:1 ratio for vinyl furniture and I guess I could just start there. Any thoughts?

Did you get the refill? I bought the spray for $1.00 - cleaned vinyl that I could not clean for a decade in my van...

I was told there's no need to dilute it for cleaning vinyl, just make sure you rinse when done.

Dumb question but is everyone removing the upholstery to clean?

i diluted it as directed for vinyl and it came out great... 10 to 1 I think. Not sure it needs to be full strength after the results I got. I figured i could always use it full strength if I didn't like the diluted results.

Also it dried the heck out of my hands which made me put a double thick coat of 303 on afterwords out of worry that it would dry out the vinyl. I dont know that you need to do that.

I got the spray bottle ($1.00) used it just the way it came. Cleans great. Didn't rinse, but didn't let it sit too long and just wiped it dry. Then I sued a spray app of "ICE PREMIUM CARE" Maxx Protectant by Turtle Wax for the UV protection . Great finish and I will see if it holds up any where near as the 303 I've been reading about so much on this forum. I'm not knocking the 303, it is just easier for me to get this stuff locally.
And OOOOHHH that protectant smells soooo good.
