Vinyl cleaner

I use 303 to protect my interior but the 06 owners manual says nothing about using babes or meguiars cleaner for the interior. I used the meguiars on my old supra and it looked new until we sold it. I am just wondering what vinyl cleaner you guys recommend thanks

I use a little Fantastic if needed. The Mr Clean Majic Eraser works good for tough spots or scuffs. Follow up with 303.

What BrianM said when it comes to stains. For general cleaning, I'd recommend a little regular Tide (no bleach) and some warm water. Work it into the vinyl with a soft brush and rinse. Follow up with 303.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority.

I just noticed an oil stain on a vinyl pad that has seems to have set, any ideas on how to get it out? It's 3 quarter sized drops that spilled during winterization and were unnoticed until 2 days ago.

Fantastik or Magic Eraser is what I'd try. If that doesn't work, goo be gone or some other orange oil cleaner might be worth a shot. Rinse really well afterwards.

Try the Majic Eraser. That thing seems to work great on most stains.

Whatever cleaner you use (I use Fantastic), use a brush. The brush makes all the difference.
