Those things are unreal! I just used them with some spray nine and it brought my white vinyl up like new. There were a couple of marks that always bugged me and I couldn't get rid of them regardless of what I tried. I had just accepted them as there to stay, but the magic eraser got rid of them pretty easily surprisingly. Anyone else try them?

I use them after each boat outing.I'm really anal about keeping my boat spotless.Have you tried the Majic Eraser on the rub rail?

Spray a little 409 with bleech on that eraser and just go straight down the rub rail.amazing how well that works.

I've used them on white vinyl too and with scarey good results :eek: . They are almost too good to be true.
Kinda waiting for the other shoe to drop...like when you find out after a season of using them on vinyl , it falls apart :eek:

I've used them and they do work great. But I was TOLD they are hard on vinyl so I use them only when necessary and use a Aerospace conditioner after.

I've been cleaning the vinyl on our boat with them for 3 years. The only thing I would recomend is to put a vinyl protector on after you are done, so they dont get a dried out look.

Yah thats what I figured. It definetly removed any protection that I had on there from before.

I've been using them for about 3 years....I ordered a replacement seat skin for my 382 last month directly from Formula (seams were coming apart from before I got it) and Stephanie at McLeod said they recommend against using them......said they dry the fabric out bad and make it look like "plastic". I will continue to use them but will treat the fabric well afterwards.

I use them on the Donzi, but then I use them only with water as directed and I also use a good clean micro-fiber cloth to go back after them and wipe the seats down with... I wipe down every area with a damp micro fiber.... I never use anything other than water and the micro fibers...and the erasers dipped in clean water.

I religiously spray the 303 Aerospace on the vinyl... my front bucket seats are original...and they look great considering original is 1993.

Less is always more... but I also think staying on top of the Game is key also...

Doc :cool:

I'm going to be going thru a pack of them tomorrow when I clean up my paw prints from changing out my port starter. Never thought to use addtional cleaner with them, and after reading this will probalby shy to the conservative side and stay away from it. Plain water and sponge as always.

Now with that said, I may use the extra cleaner on the rub rail. I know just the spnge alone won't clean my rubber insert with any real significant imnpact.

There's an abrasive action going on there. My wife recently marveled at scuffs she removed from our home's interior walls. Glad to see she didn't burn through the paint with them. I tend to regard them as pretty much a sanding block. BUT they do have their time and place. I think it's a great product!

They work WONDERS on gelcoat nonskid. The swim platform on my Baja gets filthy after a few outtings from the muddy water and footprints...etc. NOTHING takes it off....except a magic eraser.

Hey guys... I just boat an older Baja 270 that needs a thorough cleaning. I have heard wonders with the magic eraser on vinyl so I picked up a box. Is it safe to use on colored or white vinyl only. I'm wafting for a shipment of leverage products to come in to follow up with a conditioner so I have not gone too far with them yet.
