    How to remove bathing suit fabric stain from white vinyl?

    Does anyone have any experience in removing bathing suit fabric stains (black!) from a vinyl Sea-Doo seat? My seat is white!! Thanks, Mario.

    have you tried something like this?

    There's been quite a few instances of people with stains on their seats, dunno if anyone has successfully removed them w/o recovering the seat...

    I've got something similar, and that's what I tried first. I've also tried soap, mineral spirits, alcohol, baking soda and vinegar, acetone, carpet cleaner, and praying. Nothing works. Now I'm looking into vinyl dye kits. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em! - Mario

    I hate it when I read the title of a thread and it's this. Good luck my friend...this is a tough one. I think it was LiquidChicken who also had this happen last year on his GTR...not sure if he got the stain out 100% or not. Hopefully he will see this and chime in and what he did.

    My wife had a new black suit she hadn't washed yet that got wet and transferred some color. How bad is it? I used a combination of z-cleaner a nylon bristle brush, and a magic eraser. Z cleaner has done wonders on keeping my white seat white. BUT, only use a pure white rag to clean with and don't use paper towel with colors. It works wonders just be careful with it.

    My stain wasn't bad but could definitely see it. It's completely out and has taken other minor stains out no problem. I dont go anywhere without it if I dont plan on coming home the same day.

    Thanks, Waterguy00. I had just given up after using my last product (1000+ miracle stain remover), but I'll give it a try! - Mario

    No problem, hopefully it works for you. It took some work between the z cleaner, z cleaner magic eraser, brush and vinyl foam cleaner (forgot to add to my original list). I threw everything at it and took some elbow grease, but eventually it came out. Not sure how bad yours is but should definitely help or remove completely depending on severity. I have her put down a white hand towel on the seat now when she wears that black suit.

    Mine looked like a shadow. So wasn't deep in color like some I've seen where a wet life jacket set on the seat transferred deeply. Not sure if he ever got it out, but was pretty severe.

    Ahhh that's right...it was you that I was thinking of who had this issue. Damn bathing suits.

    It's mold. You'll never get rid of it. If you have warranty coverage push for a new seat.
