What does everyone use to clean their soft top
I just want to see what different people use to clean their soft tops and their plastic windows with. I just got mine and it needs some cleaning on the windows. Post what you use and what works best on here

The rag you use is important.....diapers don't have wood products in the material

Tide and water worked wonders on the boat top and the Jeep for me.

For the top, it's water and regular ole dishsoap scrubbed with a generic automotive wash glove... Then some original Armor All sprayed and rubbed in with a soft rag.

Simple, but has kept the top looking new, shiny and black.

I use some generic glass cleaner and a microfiber towel (got it with some cleaning supplies). The towel is really meant for the body after waxing but it does a great job on the windows and doesn't leave any scratches/swirls like some other products will leave. The down side is that on the glass it leaves some fibers behind but on the plastic it doesn't leave anything.

Plus microfiber cloths. Never use paper towels.

Don't use dish sop, it strips the wax off your paint and will eventually dry-out your top. Use some good car wash, lambs wool cleaning pad and a soft brush on the top. Use Rag Top protectant on the vinyl top when done, it works great, you can get it on-line. For the windows, get them wet with a soft stream of water and ring out the sponge/lambs wool and let the soap run down the window and lightly spray it off. I use a quality microfiber made for glass to dry it off. Dry it lightly. I have read of people using pledge on the windows, never tried it and don't plan to. Be smart, keep them clean and use p,entry of water and don't scrub them.

Meh, the rain typically. On occasion simple green and the hose to get the mud lighter.

Rain water

I use the BesTop cleaners and the softest rags I can find.

I have been using WINTER to clean my top.
It's down most of the summer, and in the winter I'm just biding my time until I can put the top back down!
