cleaning soft top

Anyone have any tips for cleaning a soft top? Can you use a foaming brush at one of those coin ops? It's mostly road salt that I want to get rid of.

I spray some simple green on the badly soiled spots and use a soft-to-mild tire scrub brush. Works awesome! Actually, first, I go over the whole thing with just my sponge and soap, and whatever mud spots or whatever that are stubborn, the simple green takes great care of.

Ditto here...but that soap has a tendenct to be hard on the top...so I use the 303 protectant si it doesn't dry out the fabric as much...

i'm gonna bump this back up to the top....is the bestop cleaner and protectant a waste of money? i went to the autozone to see if they had anything like that, but it was all car wash stuff...and what do you use on the windows? just any regular glass cleaner, or is there something special that needs to be used on those as well?

I wouldn't recommend using glass cleaner on your plastic windows. It fogs them up pretty bad. I usually use Simple Green to clean the top, but I've noticed I've gotten a couple spots that look like bleach spots, so I'm wondering if I need to start diluting a little.

I use the same wax that I use on my Jeep o clean my windows. I use a damp towel to wipe them down, then I wax them with Mothers. Every few months I'll bring the windows inside the house, and I'll sit down in the floor and wax windows.
