Top Stain Rempoval!

I have a 1973 Cj5 and I put a Gray Bestop Supertop on it. With all the wheelin I have been doin and all the farm use I have accumulated some mud stains. How can I get them off without discoloring my top? Oxyclean?

I normally take the top off....lay it out flat on the driveway....wet it down with warm water....then I put Tide laundry soap on it....and scrub it with a scrub brush. Then rinse it off....and put it back on. I've had my Bestop for about 5 years now...and it still looks like new. Good luck!

Mother's makes a soft top cleaner that works well when you cannot take it off and clean it on the driveway

I use Greased Lightning. It can be picked up from just about any autoparts store. Just spray it on, let it set for a few seconds and hose it off. It even works well on the undercarriage mud that gets baked on from exhaust heat.

the mother's product does say to use a brush after applying. Does Greased lightning work well with a black soft top.

Yeah. I try to avoid getting it on the plastic windows as it is potent stuff but it works really well on my black vinyl tops. I just spray it on, wipe it around with a sponge, and hose it off.
