dirty vinyl

If plain old mild soap and water wont do the trick, go to your local auto parts place and get some regular vinyl upholstery cleaner.
There are a lot of good products on the market for that. You might also try using the Armor All cleaner. They make a cleaner for doing vinyl and dashboards etc as well as Armor All, which will protect your interior from dirt, UV, etc.

Bleach-White, a commercial cleaning solution. I used to clean up Golf car seats with the stuff. Also Super Clean, But make sure you double rinse the stuff. And WEAR RUBBER GLOVES! These products will remove your skin quickly!!!

Cool seat cleaners

Read your post and you might want to try Westley,s bleech white white wall cleaner, along with an s.o.s. pad, this works real well for me. If you still have marks or grime there is something new on the market called Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, I've tried this on tennis shoes and it really brings out the white. Give this a try.

Before trying the bleaches try a little spot first as vinyl is dyed on the surface and can be removed as well.
I use Murphy's Oil soap for all vinyl and esp. leather.
Luv the smell of NITRO in the morning.
