|Q & A on Proper Convertible Top Cleaning:|
Q: How do I clean my convertible top?
A: Convertible tops are subjected to the same environmental conditions that nature and man places on your car's finish.
A regular program of keeping the convertible top clean through regular washings BEFORE it gets dirty, will enhance the life and beauty of your convertible top and make successive cleaning easier.
RAGGTOPP™ Cleaner is the finest cleaner of its kind: a superior cleaner, environmentally friendly and safe to use. It's unique formulation will not harm paint or glass surfaces. Simply follow the directions on the bottle and follow the cleaning with RAGGTOPP™ Protectant, a fluorocarbon re-water repelling system and your convertible top will look like new.
Q: How do I Protect my convertible top?
A: Although the fabric does not promote mildew growth by itself, mildew may develop on dirt and other foreign substances that are not removed. This is especially true in warm, humid, dark environments. A program of keeping the fabric clean through regular washings, BEFORE it gets dirty, will enhance the life and beauty of the acrylic and make successive cleaning easier.
Most automatic car washes will not harm cloth top fabrics. Washes with water jets and hanging cloths provide a more gentle cleaning action. Those using heavy barrel brushes could damage the top material. Haartz recommends hand washing.
Hand washing in shade or partial shade, not direct sunlight, is best. DO NOT USE DETERGENT. Bird and tree droppings, as well as other loose particle soils, should be removed immediately. Vacuum with a brush attachment and rinse thoroughly with water to remove loose particle soils. This will also prevent the soils from being redeposited during the cleaning process. Once the fabric has been rinsed thoroughly, spray RAGGTOPP™ Cleaner evenly over the entire surface while still wet.
Allow the cleaner to soak for 10 to 20 minutes and then scrub lightly with a soft nylon brush or terry cloth rag. Rinse thoroughly, preferably until no remaining soap foam is observed. Additional cleanings may be required. It is best to determine the need for additional cleanings after the fabric has dried completely.
For more stubborn cases, mix a solution of no more than 1/2 cup (4oz.) bleach and 1/4 cup (2oz.) RAGGTOPP™ Cleaner per gallon of water, soak for approximately 20 minutes and scrub lightly as indicated above. (Excessive soaking with the bleach solution can deteriorate seam threads.) Rinse thoroughly to prevent streaking on painted and chrome surfaces. Several cleanings may be necessary.
Once dry, cleaning must be followed by re-water repelling with RAGGTOPP™ Protectant. (This product does not contain CFC's and therefore, is not harmful to the environment.) Failure to apply will result in rapid resoiling of the unprotected fabric.

5 stars for RaggTopp Fabric Cleaner

When I bought a cabriolet the care and preservation of the black fabric top became very important. I did a lot of research about which product to use and RaggTopp always was very highly recommended. I bought the cleaner, the special brush and the follow up RaggTopp protectant product. Used as a system these 3 products have my top looking like new. I'm now on my second cabriolet (again a black fabric top) and the RaggTopp products will be used on this top as well.
Pros:RaggTopp cleaner is very effective when used with brush and protectant
Cons:I haven't been able to buy the cleaner in a large size - I've only found it in a small size.

I have been using RaggTopp Fabric/Vinyl Cleaner for 12 years. It has always performed as advertised. My convertible top always comes out looking like new.
Cons:I would like to see the manufacturer offer a large quantity refill.
