I have the same boat and probably interior. I use Babes mostly with a medium bristle scrub brush when necessary. I also bought a product being peddled on here called Exquisite that works well but smell's like carpet cleaner so if I use that I follow it up with Babes for the smell. I'm super anal about my boat and interior so I typically just have to wipe it down with a microfiber cloth and Babes. For really tough stuff I break out the Mr Clean Magic Erasers and scrub it out. At the beginning of the season i use a steam cleaner to knock out the hard to get dirt in the grooves. Like I said I'm anal.

IMo, use magic erasers as a last result when cleaning your vinyl. They are very abrasive. I bought some of that Exquisite stuff, it works no better than babes IMO. Once a year I'll use the 3M vinvly cleaner/wax and really scrub my vinyl. It seems to get the dirt out of the cracks and really cleans the vinyl.

Heeb, it's called Leather and Plastic Cleaner. Stuff is awesome. For wax, I like Babe's Boat Brite right out of the water then at home I like the P&S Ultracoat Wax or the P&S Carnuba Creme Wax.

I think you have to go through the dealer locater on the website or call em. It's about $20 a gallon. I get mine where I get all my upholstery supplies.

Hello and good evening!I am the person selling the Exquisite Cleaner. I have worked in the upholstery cleaning and repair business for 11 years and have not found anything that works as good as this cleaner does. It is gentle enough to use on your vinyl on a regular basis and does more than just clean your vinyl, it helps to maintain that soft new vinyl feel. In addition it is cheaper than Babes. A gallon of Exquisite buy it now is $17.95 plus s&h, Babes sells theirs on their website for $30.25 plus s&h. You can also see the Exquisite cleaner compared side by side to the 3M cleaner on, check out the "vinyl cleaner showdown." I sell the cleaner on ebay at or I can email you a bill direct through paypal. If you mention wakeworld I will give you a 15% discount on all orders. In addition check my feedback on ebay to see what others have said about the cleaner. Also, magic erasers should only be used in a pinch as they will strip off the uv protective coating that is manufactured into the vinyl. If you have any questions please email me at Thanks
Note to hatepain, next time you order let me know and I will send you the original formula of the cleaner which has a much lighter and different scent although I have to tell you are the first person who has said they did not like the scent

No offense Susan but the Esqusite dosen't work near as good as the Malco and the Esquisite smells wierd. I am not a rep for Malco either, but have been doing custom upholstery work for twenty plus years.

I've used exquisite for some years now and not only does it keep and clean your boat vinyl great it CONDITIONS the vinyl as well to keep it soft. I don't make a dime from this stuff but I'm telling you it works and for the money you can't go wrong. I personally don't think it smells wierd but to each his own.

The Exquisite does work better than Babes at cleaning and you can tell it conditions well too but I just love the smell of Babes so I tend to use it more frequently for the end of day wipe down. Susan is dead on about magic Erasers they actually lightly sand the surface they're cleaning.

I tried the exquisite the last time one of these threads went around a month or two back. It worked great and left the seats conditioned. It does have sort of a cleaner smell to it but nothing bad at all and it went away quickly.

I've got the exquisite as well. Works pretty good, does smell like carpet cleaner but it's not offensive in anyway.
