I have a pvc easy up hood in stone which is looking mucky and a touch tired.

What would be recommended as a cleaner which would be kind on the stitching etc plus cleaning tips?

I ahve used the version of Raggtopp for mohair and am very satisfied with it. They make a kit for vinyl too

Many thanks for your replies, I think I'll give the renovo a whirl with the wolfsteins as plan B if necessary.

What is recommended for the inside of a vinyl hood? cleaning the outside of a black vinyl hood is easy and the autoglym conditioner works well - but mine is getting a few grubby marks on the "white" layer inside the hood, and I'm concerned that a cleaner will just make a mark into a larger stain.

Get in touch with MMC if it's beyond a good clean, Budster had his refurbished at a very reasonable price at the factory.
