Interior Cleaner/Protectant - Current Yr Material

For those of you with newer boats, what are you using to keep the interior clean and protected? Specifically the colored materials of the newer/current gen boats? I know the colored material is more porous than the carbon vinyl and previous versions, wondering if it absorbs cleaners rather than providing a layer of protection...

I used to use this on my 09 vinyl, and it was like wax for the seats, water just breaded up on it and kept the stains away. Wondering if its suitable for the new material, and if its the best option.

Guess no one with a new boat cleans the interior...

I am using all of the Boat Candy products. Very happy with them all especially the Vinyl cleaner, great at removing the sunscreen and Zinc cream marks.....

I have been using either 303 or the Boat Bling products. Really happy with both. The Vinyl sauce (Boat Bling) is great, follow up with a quick mist after using the cheapo TnA cleaner from the dollar store to actually clean it.

If you use a heavy rag, put the rag in a plastic bag after protectant (not cleaning) and you can re-use it without much application of new product each time.

The Hot Sauce is money for the exterior too - looks like you waxed your boat each time.

Jim at Viper told me to use a mild soapy solution to clean and then 303 to protect them.
