Cleaning Vinyl seats

My white seats were looking decidely grey - tried armour all etc - no good at all.

I actually went against the grain and bought a specific product for the job - Starbrite Vinyl Cleaner/Shampoo. I used a green nylon scourer from Tesco and it worked a treat - seats look like new.

I WAS going to post on here telling everyone how wonderful this product is and that everyone should rush out and buy it. Then I decided to leave one seat dirty as a control and try something else. Yes good old washing up liquid - and guess what - it worked exactly the same!!!

It's mainly down to the green nylon scourer - cheap and nasty wooly looking thing from Tesco. Tried it with plain water and it STILL worked a treat!!!

I know the things, you can buy the small ones with a soft sponge on the other side for cleaning the dishes. Is this the thing you speak of?

They would work but the one I used is just the rough nylon bit - green all over - even cheaper and a larger surface.
