Stained Jeep Top

What is the easiest/best way to clean your top after it has stained from mud being let on there to long? Can you put spray Scotchgard or something like that?? Will it damage the material?

I have never personally tried it, but I heard that the Bestop brand top cleaner is great for taking care of mud stains. If you contack Geoff@bestop on here, I am sure he can give you some input on their product.

Armor All Original protectant works great.

Scotchgard and Armor All are not cleaners. It's a coating that helps avoid stains in the future.

You can use detergent. 409, Simple Green, that sort of stuff. But mild soap (liquid dish soap) and a soft scrub brush and elbow grease are always good. The cleaners made for soft tops or convertible tops are good ideas, as are the protectants made for the tops. Yes, Bestop sells both, so this sounds like a commercial, but there are other brands too, and it's not exactly a huge business for us.

JP Magazine did a test of soft top cleaners and our stuff tied with Wolfensteins RaggTopp cleaner. They think it's the same stuff. I don't know who makes ours, to be honest.

We've tried many cleaners and never found one to remove the mud stains. We were pleasantly surprised to find two that could actually clean a Jeep top.

Finally got a DRY WARM weekend. The Best Top cleaner didn't do a good job, but Simple Green did do the trick along with alot of scrubing.
