rust colored spots

I found a few very small dots of a rust color substance on one of my seats. Boat is stored in my garage (without a cover) so I know it isn't actually rust. Have no idea how it got there. So far I have tried all the vinyl cleaner (ibiz) I had on hand and tried a magic eraser. Neither did the job. Any ideas for what to get this off?

It's spider poop. Sunlight will make it fade but it will never completely go away. Starbrite make a cleaner see here:

not sure that it is spider poop. I've dealt with that before and it comes out with the cleaners I have on hand.

If it has been on there since the fall it will be very hard to remove. But whatever...

It's stored in my garage at my house. I had been in and out of the boat a good bit in the early spring getting things ready for summer and only noticed it recently. I don't think it was there very long.

Not saying it isn't spider poop, just saying I've had to clean that out before and this seems different.

I appreciate the help, didn't mean to come off as if I didn't.

its spider poop. Clean with 303 or starbrite and then move out to the sun. It will go away.
