    You might try asking the guys that manufacture the fabric, as they might be willing to give advice:

    Re: Convertible Top Stains

    last month I got tired of seeing stains on my tan top so I took what I thought was liquid laundry detergent and poured it on my stiff brush, added some car wash, wet the top and scrubbed the heck out of it adding water as needed and more soap and iot came out as good as new.

    when I was finished as I put the "laundry detergent" up I realized it was clorox 2

    so clorox2 car wash and equal amounts of water with a stiff plastic brush worked wonderful for me!!

    I finished off with 2 coats of Ragg-top sealant!

    My tan top looks great!!

    That makes sense. C2 has bleach and whatever...

    it is that protects colored fabric from "bleaching out".

    Have you tried it on carpet stains?

    What was your ratio of powder to water or was it just a paste (so to speak)?

    Some of the greatest discoveries in history were by accident.

    I actually

    poured it on full strength and added water to keep it wet and scrubbed. like a paste. I thought I was using laundry detergent so I didn't worry about it hurting the top!

    I have done it again and it works great!!
