There were a lot of people on my boat over labor day weekend, and some A-hole let their wet bag sit on 3 different places on my boat. The bag bled through and stained my white interior blue. I tried to get it out with oxy clean, but that didn't work. Any suggestions?

Sun is your friend with this issue. I once had a situation where some drunk friends thought it would be funny to draw all over another drunk chick with a magic marker all over her body. Needless to say after the arteests were done, she moved and sat in a different spot. I then had a perfect picture of a naked man with a rather large dong printed on my seat perfectly! Tried srcubbing and magic eraser, all the normal stuff. Nothing would phase the sharpie, even tried a rag with a little acetone on it. No go. After about 3-4 days of direct sunlight it had all but completely vanished. Can't even find where it was as of now.

If that seat cushion is removable take it out and lay it in the sun for a few days and it will disappear. Otherwise yeah just let it ride and it will eventually disappear.

I had the same type of thing happen 2 seasons ago. Nothing, and I mean nothing, would get the stain out. Now two seasons later the stain is completely gone. It's amazing what a little sunlight can do.

i had this happen before i tried EVERY cleaner known to man. from babes, to powder pot and rust cleaner, oxy, dawn, there were like 4-5 more. nothing would touch it. finnally had to use bleach. after re-apply for almost an hour keeping it wet with fresh bleach every 5 minutes (used a cotton ball) it completely disappeared.

luckily it was on a white area.

once it was out, i rinsed it good, wiped dry and apllied babes seat conditioner to restore the moisture and protect it and keep it soft

The sun will likely take it out. Any stain that has bleed through on my seats has come just by being in the sun.

Another thumbs up for the sun, it will take out some stains. Personally, I would never use bleach on my vinyl, bleach is extremely hard on vinyl and will remove any UV block it has in the vinyl intself. Try a mild cleaner, I use exquisite this wont strip protectants, and anything that will not come out let the sun have a shot at it.

We had a gal in the boat last week that had "New Skin" on her leg. I guess she slid into 2nd base & had a gnarly raspberry on her leg from it. Anyway, she left some DNA behind in a couple of places. Exquisite doesn't do a dam thing on the stain. We tried a number of other things too, Malco, Oxy Clean, Acetone, etc. Nothing is touching it other than sunshine. The sun has faded it about 1/2 way gone in a week. Hoping it is completely gone in another week.
