Caring for vinyl that is exposed to the outdoors poses a special challenge. Vinyl is very susceptible to sun damage—drying, cracking, peeling and fading. You'll want to use one of these specially formulated products below for effective protection. Your everyday, all-purpose dressing that you may wipe over your car's interior surfaces doesn't have the muscle—or UV stabilizers—to do the trick. The products on this page are made for outdoor use, meaning they won't run, readily rinse away or wilt in the sun.
