Default Cleaning vinyl cushions

I am in need of a good vinyl cushion cleaner. My cushions and bolsters are not that old but get dirty very quickly where the boat is kept. Over time they have been harder and harder to keep white. A full cover is being considered but in the mean time I need a really good cleaning product. No offense to Starbrite, as I like a lot of their products, but there vinyl cleaner is not cutting it and i need some other suggestions. Thanks!

I use a product called Leather CPR to clean the vinyl and then finish with Collinite Leather and Vinyl Wax. I think you'll be happy with the results and it will hold up a bit better.

Just answered this last week!
It's that time of year!
Clean the cushions with soap of choice and water.
Then use Armour All vinyl cleaning wipes! They really lift the
deep dirt out! Then seal with an above mentioned product!

Not saying they dont work, they do. But keep in mind they are very abrassive, wether it be your vinyl or gel coat. Thats said I do use them when the stain is extreme.

100% correct. Ive been using them for years, no issues what so ever. Buy the heavy duty ones, the 'normal' one crumbles too easy.
