Awesome Products

After reading here about Lexol Vinylex, found it at Paragon products web site. Looking around their site, also decided to try P21S - Concours Look Carnauba Wax. Received the product in two days!

First waxed the boat with Meguir's marine polish wax, which cleaned up the boat nicely, including some "staining" below the waterline. Applied the Vinylex throughout the interior and WOW, what an amazing product. It cleaned, it shined, and it protects with one easy step. Probably used too much, but WOW. Getting pretty geeked up at this point, so tried the carnauba wax next. This stuff is by far the easiest to apply, and even added incredible depth to simple white gelcoat. Cleaning up the boat after skiing this afternoon, which btw sucked, went mucho faster. This wax and vinyl cleaner is an awesome combination.

Can you post the Paragon Products web address? I have some slight mildew spots on my sun pad that are really bugging me.

Thanks

PS205 - The Vinylex won't get the mildew off I don't think.
The 303 site has good advice for cleaning mildew safely using an amonia mixture:

I just started using the Vinylex also and it absorbs into and softens the vinyl really well. I'm sold on it. Here is where I bought it from:
http://www.superiorcarcare.net/lexsprayvin.html
They shipped it out pretty quick.

...and here is the Paragon address:

I have seen the vinylex at GI joes...

Does it really clean well?? Reads more like an Armor all product on it label... How shiny does it get?? Less or more than 303????

It cleans very well. kind of a satin sheen, but it softens. I did not use any 303 on the boat, but maybe I'll comparison test on the hot tub cover tomorrow

Is the vinylex for shine, or does it clean? I need something that is going to clean up the interior then I will shine it....

Another vote for the Vinylex, that is some awesome stuff. It makes the vinyl soft and just a little shiny, looks great. It cleans normal-use dirt, anyway, but I can't say how it would do with really dirty or neglected vinyl. I can't believe it wouldn't hurt to try, it really does leave the vinyl looking great.
