Cleaning Top

Post by spec5avery » Tue Jun 12, 2018 1:49 pm

Have a NOS vinyl top. How can I clean all the white talcum powder off it? Was told to use soap and water but this just isn't working. Any help would be appreciated

This is one of those things where if you ask ten people you will get ten different answers. I have heard everything from WD-40 to carb cleaner, brake cleaner and acetone. The WD-40 I might try but the others, while they probably work quite well, I think I would pass. They are going to dry out the top in a big hurry.
