Never heard of this.. I used a nylon brush. Not the hard bristled one the soft one but enough to scrub some. Used a vinyl cleaner and the same brush to clean the vinyl parts in the car and it pulled of a miracle..

TRY IT!! I promise, you'll be more than impressed. It's not typically found at your local parts stores (very few do have it). Malco products are generally bought by professional auto detailers, however, you can get yourself a small bottle, pretty inexpensively from the link I sent earlier. its great for leather, vinyl, door panels, dashboard, center console... its very versatile it may require dilution though. Nice before and after by the way.

Hmm you know what I think you got summing going there...

1 drink = "it's not that bad"
Half bottle = "what stain??.."
All bottle = "WTF happened??? MALIBUUU!!!!!!!"
