SOLUTION TO STAINS on VINYL

If this has been discussed before then so be it if not read on....

We have an 06 in right now that has been left covered outside. Probably not covered the exact way of perfection. Also probably put away wet because of High use...which is fine. Use the boat that is what it is made for

Folks have complained about tough stains to remove, sometimes turning pink almost or very light brown. I wanted to show you this photo. The boat needs a bath, a detail, a good cleaning. I was asked to prepare additional photos for a customer of distance, we used a "MAJIC ERASER' on the interior, a sort of before and after. Works great and gets the deep stuff out of the textured vinyl. Just wanted you to see it first hand

I have the same problem on my 93 turning a light pinkish brown in a few spots. Where do you buy the majic eraser cleaner? Soft scrub with bleach is the only product Ive found to work on those spots and guess its not good for the vinyl.

Jim, was there any product used? Soap and water? Or was it just a damp Majic Eraser? Thanks, Jason

Well done Jim, I've used them in the same manner. A lot of people will argue how much it will hurt and damage the vinyl, but in cases like yours I don't see the harm only good.

Jim I would keep it clean and do but it seems to turn back to the light brown color as the summer progresses in the same areas. So again what is "majic eraser" ? Rather not wast time going on a wild internet goose chase and bet others may want to know too.

I believe he's refering to the Mr Clean Magic eraser.... http://www.mrclean.com/en_CA/magic-eraser.do

Magic eraser is a product by Mr Clean that is abrasive but not destructive. It feels like a sponge wet. It is almost certianly taking a small amount of the actual vinyl off but only the layer that is irreparably stained. Think of it as buffing off the oxidation on vinyl. Agree with Sand, it is not the first option but is effective and necessary.
