OK, I know there are a bunch of you guys on here who also own eXmarks.

The light grey seats are terrific... except after a while they are FILTHY!

What do you guys use to clean them up?
I know it will need to be something strong, but I don't want to guess and use something that will damage the seat.

I got some good news for you....MR CLEAN ERASER!!!

It works, it works really really well. Little water and elbow grease and one of these magic babies and it will look new!

Don't be fooled by all the other claims.

After it's spotless....hit it with armor-all ( I use fluid film) and stuff won't stick as bad later.

That Eraser works awesome! If you can't get one, use simple green & scrub brush. Then rinse it off.

there is a concentrated soap/degreaser called big red. Stuff is awesome teamed up with a pressure washer

Use caution with the Armor-All. While it is an excellent product it will make the seat VERY slippery.

Take a 1 gallon bucket with warm water and a shot of Dawn, Use a sponge or brush and suck it up with a wet/dry shop vac. If that doesnt work try using whitewall cleaner

Soft Scrub, we use it on all of our golf course equipment seats.

Whatever you use, make sure you treat the seat afterwards with a conditioner.

Some cleaners will dry them out, then they'll crack in no time.

Gritty/bleach based type cleaners (comet, etc.) seem to be the worse.

I would hit it with Simple green also. If that does not work, try some Westleys Bleche white.

The armor all comment reminds me of a professional motorcycle drag raer who let someone clean the bike between rounds. When she launched, the bike shot out from under her because of the armor all on the seat!!!!!

Spray Nine with a Scotch pad.......
