Question Cleaning Stripes

For those of you with stripes (vinyl not painted) what do you use to clean them?

I have the factory stripe from Ford and after so much bird $#*@ on there in the heat it just gets sorta burnt in. Even after washing, you can still see outlines of dirt/bird $#*@/pollen that has cooked in the heat.

What product to you guys (and girls) use to clean this?

Not really cleaning but I use Mothers Synthetic wax over mine, it brings back the color and stops the Birds Biz from hurting it. Ive also use Mothers Showtime quick detailer with success.

Not sure to laugh or what. Wax wont hurt it. All it does is block the UV.

I agree, some slight spray wax will help protect the vinyl in the future. Unfortunately, once the vinyl is stained, it's hard to bring back!

Windex contains ammonia and alcohol. Ammonia is corrosive to vinyl. As someone who deals in rare, collectible vinyl records, Windex is a huge no-no. You might want to try one of the Meguiar's products.
