Was reminded of these good vinyl cleaing tips by my friend Jeff at the local mortuary. I stop by the place once a month or so to clean up some folding vinyl chairs they have on site. The chairs are a very light and made of vinyl. They end up with "mysterious" ink marks on them and Jeff can't get them out. Well he went through the progression of how he cleans the vinyl and I said that's exactly right. So courtesy of Jeff, here's a few tips on cleaning vinyl (Be sure you've read or watched the other articles on how to tell the difference between vinyl and leather).
When cleaning vinyl start with a mild cleaner and progress toward a stronger one. In most cases, vinyl will not be harmed even by a strong cleaner. Certainly pretest any cleaner somewhere that is not visible. To pretest put a little of the cleaner on a white rag, rub it on the hidden area and look at the rag again. If you're showing color on the rag then don't use the cleaner. But in most cases on vinyl it's not a problem. So heres's the progression:
Thanks for the article idea Jeff. Glad to see you but also happy to walk out of the mortuary too. :)
