Wash with D&L hand cleaner using a soft brush. After washing use vinyl protective finish.
Simple Green to get the grime off, follow with a vinyl conditioner.
I usually use Megs vinyl cleaner or APC and Tornador black series. The tool really help clean not only the vinyl, but also leather and plastic.
What about cloth?
(For newer cars where they went to these light gray and tan colors that seem to get grimy if you look at them wrong.)
I've used a home carpet cleaner (wet vac with hot water/soap mix), but some of the grime doesn't come out. In fact, when they're dry it seems like some of it was just moved around to make a lighter stain over a larger area.
One of the replies above mentioned Fantastic/409. Another mentioned Shout laundry pre-treat.
Steam cleaning works well too and loosens up just about anything
Not only it cleans, but also disinfect the fabric from dust mites and bacteria. The only down side is the price of the machine and service.
I agree, use either of the "M's", Mothers or Meguires are both great with vinyl, and I've had great luck with fabric and carpet using 409. On the fabric though, it will make a difference on the age and dirt as to spot cleaning or actually needing to use a dry cleaner. Just my two cents. Best of luck.
I have tried using Megs Apc and Tornador black series and made my work faster and efficient. The dilution I used was 10:1.
