Depends on what's on it. Look at your local auto parts store (Discount Auto, Auto Zone, etc.) for a product used to clean vinyl tops and such for tough jobs. Otherwise just car wash soap and water with a cloth and towel dry. Don't use bleach or some strong household chemical. Also try to get a chemical that won't stain since the top is white. Be careful when scrubbing around the seams. If you shred the stitching, you will shorten the life of your roof.

Some stains will not come off of a white vinyl roof no matter what. If you see anything foreign land on your roof, get it cleaned off as soon as possible. Sometimes, once it has dried and settled into the grain, it is there permanently.

Ive heard Mop-N-Glo works VERY well from MANY people here... I would heed their advice... Search around...... :)

Search around...... :)Many eons ago I was a detailer and found that mop-n-glo is indeed the best product to use on white vinyl tops. After doing a Lincoln or Caddy with a white vinyl top the owners were always amazed. :)

Thanks much for the info; I never would have thought of Mop & Glo!

I used to have a link to a car detailing forum/site which had a lot of info like the Mop&Glow. Does anyone know of any? Thanks.

I have a dark blue vinyl top. What can I use? If it's Mop and Glo' how do I use it exactly, to not ruin the roof which is in mint condition?

Thanks
