    How are you keeping your white vinyl white? (issues with bathing suit bleed through)

    A few weeks back my wife rode with me and didn't tell me her black suit was new and unwashed yet. Upon our return I noticed what looked like a shadow on the set where she sat. Apparently her suit had bleed onto the white seat. After many different marine vinyl cleaners its virtually invisible. Today my brother rode with me for maybe 10mins with an old suit washed many times before which also bleed a little bit. Am I the only one with this issue? How are you guys keeping bathing suits from bleeding onto our brilliant white seats? Is there a scotch gaurd equivalent for vinyl?

    Unfortunately it did. Although, I don't think this one will be as big of an issue. Still makes me mad that I have to be so careful. I would think there would be something out there that works like scotch gaurd for vinyl.

    I've used a stiffer nylon brush with cleaners like spray nine, tuff stuff, and z-cleaner. So far cant say which has worked better, but the combination of those along with rubbing with the brush seemed to do the trick so far.
