I have some white marks / stains on some dark blue upholstery that appear to be the result of it getting wet during the winter months. The upholstery is stuck to the inside of the hull so removing it to put through the washing machine is out of the question. Has anyone else had a similar problem and can offer a suggestion as to how I might remove the marks? Thanks. Andy
You could try using a Vax type of carpet/upholstery cleaning machine. I use one on ours and it works well and gets rid of those 'wintery' smells too. Not sure about your problem but can't hurt to try it.
You could try wet wipes. I have a u shaped back rest which is difficult to remove and a couple of winters ago our windows leaked and it got wet. It was quite badly stained so after drying I used wet wipes - not so much to soak it in one go but after 3 or 4 wipe overs over a period of time (just so that it was damp) the stains disappeared
Stardrops used to be the go to product for this sort of thing. Its still made but I'm not sure about the formulation nowadays. It does say that Stardrops high foam shampoo is suitable for stains etc on upholstery and that Stardrops All Round Cleaner should also cope!
Might be worth calling, or visiting, Hugh Crane Limited at Acle. They supply a plethora of cleaning products. Since being put onto them by Steve (Mercator), I’ve used lots of their stuff and it’s all been first class.
