Default Convertible fabric cleaner

What are we using to get green gunk off the fabric , cause I know the pressure washer can move it but does no good to the layers of material internally and compromises the integrity of the insulation and weatherproofing etc

I used the autoglim kit last year and was impressed at its repelling quality in the rain, but where the car is parked out of the sun there is alway a green mossy sort of ingraining going on.
I reckon milton might be the way forward and follow it up with the kit again once its back to black

Hey,

I've actually heard good things about Autoglym too, though I haven't personally used it. For a general fabric cleaner for interior, I've been using Superclean Diamant, which I order from Mister Auto (http://www.mister-auto.co.uk/en/), and I like it. But I have absolutely no idea if it will work on the convertible top fabric. You would have to check what's in it.

First, is it fabric or vinyl? This makes a big difference between cleaning products.

A friend of mine has a fabric top and actually uses Ragg Topp cleaner and protector and swears by it. I don't think this will work on vinyl though.

I would really recommend the products, even before the hardtop went on we had some heavy weather and the beading was impressive on the hood, didn't let a drop in
