You can use it full strength or diluted. I would start diluted first. Really depends on the mission and how bad your vinyl is. To really take advantage, get a nice soft bristle scrub brush to get its full cleaning power. The brush is just as big of a key as the cleaner.


As mentioned just make sure to use a good conditioner/protectant after the fact.

Thanks for the info. I still need to get some 303 before I give it a try. My seats look fine, but I can tell they are a little dirty from nearly 20 years of boating. They are probably even dirtier that I think they are though.

Being that it is actually made for carpet, has anyone used it on their floors?

Is that the one with the sign on the side that says "Free candy"?

I went to the dollar store today and picked up some TA. However, I found 2 different types. One was general purpose and in a clear bottle and was gold color. The other was in a black bottle and specifically states totally awesome vinyl cleaner.

I bought them both since they were a buck. Is there a difference? And or will one work better in different applications?

Thanks

Gold color one is the full strength. Never seen the black vinyl cleaner. Gold color needs to be rinsed well after using.

This stuff is awesome. I cleaned my 6-7 year neglected interior that looked disgusting over the weekend. While it doesn't look brand new, it looks pretty friggin' good. There's some dark spots I just couldn't get out of the vinyl, but WOW it looks awesome. Forgot to take pics, but when I get the boat back from the trailer service shop I'll snap a few. Definitely recommend this stuff... and after I did a full clean with the totally awesome, I put some 303 on it. It feels soooo good and soft now.
