Mate, I use Simple green. You get if from bunnings but It is expensive. Works for me

Sugar soap? I spoke to a fella last week about getting the diesel soot off mine, he reckons that it impregnates in the vinyl and will either not come out or you will wreck the vinyl trying to get it out.

Cheers

Matt

Missus reckons h/brand JIF/creme cleanser will do the job...She's a cleaner by profession..uses it to get the bimini looking like new. :)

Max, If it's only red dirt stain..any good truck wash..spray it on..rub it in with a soft broom..leave for 10-15mins..hose off with high pressure nozzle..bought a small Karcher pressure cleaner from Bunnings model K 2 .180 about $130 does the job. Comes with two wands..wicked for getting rid of mould on the driveway and anything else too hard to shift by normal methods. My missus loves it. JIF will get rid of the more stubborn stains..then give it a wash with Turtle wash and Wax mixed triple strength..leave it on while you sink a stubbie..that allows the wax to get into the surface..hose off with gentle spray..you'll find it a lot easier to clean down next time around..the wax keeps the dirt from penetraing the vinyl..cheers :)

Like olfart reckons, Jif is the go.

Personally I'd kick back with a beer and plan the next trip, its only going to get dirty again.

Max, take the time to give it a good dose of washnwax..Both creme cleansers are slightly abrasive..the wax seals the surface...good tip is to take the whole shebang to the car wash and hit it with the wax spray a couple of times..the one at palmo is pretty good..couple of bucks and jobs right. :wink:
