How to get mud off soft top and windows?

I went mudding the other day with my soft top on and I go to wash my Jeep and I can't get the mud stains off. Any tips of getting the mud off?

Thanks,
Kyle

I've used the abrasive side of a sponge and it worked. But my top is spice so it's hard to tell...

A tire brush or shoe brush with soap and water works great. A little work and it will come right off.

Simple green is the jam. I've used it since forever to clean rag tops. It also shines up tires, metal, plastic, and even makes bed lining look brand new. I use it on everything.

Cheers

It seems to come off easier when you don't let the mud cement on for two weeks in the sun.

Agree with the above. I use simple green and a bristle brush with handle to clean it. I let it sit in the sun for a week before I wash it and it comes off. For the windows I use a rag and PlastX.

Just hose it off. Anything that stays is considered "Off-Road Camo".
