Vacuum the top before washing.

This will remove the grit that can fray the top material. Also get a cockpit cover to put on when car is parked outside. I never used any chemical on my top and the outside was perfect when I had a new top installed at 12 years old. It was the top bow attachment strips and the rear window zipper thread that went bad.
