Question Soft top mud stains

After some hard off roading (actually an 4x4 Enduro race) I ended up with lots of mud stains all over. Everything was cleaned up but there are some really tough stains in the soft black top that doesn't get clean. I have tried every cleaner I had in my shop/house but they are still there.
Any ideas to get it clean or get it back to its color?

I still have mud stains from last year on my top. Thats why I never bring my top when I go offroading now... they're impossible to get off

Hot soapy water a toothbrush and a rag removed mud stains from mine.

I have the same problem! Kind of annoying after awhile.
No longer a jeeper, BUT I will return!

I don't run a soft top but do run soft doors from time to time. I have used a power washer to clean tough mud stains that I couldn't wash out with cleaners. You can't get the washer too close but its the only thing that would clean the gray doors I have. I don't valve the doors much either so I wouldn't wash a nice soft top that way without standing way back at first. PM Geoff@Bestop he can probably suggest something.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

After a few tries I finally found something to clean those tough stains
I used something from the laundry room called "Oxi Clean". It works!
