When caught quickly, most everyday stains like grease, blood, suntan lotion, crayon, ketchup and black felt tip pens can be wiped right off vinyl treated with Spradling™s PERMABLOK3® Topcoat. Just use mild soap and water. For more stubborn stains, a variety of concentrated and solvent type cleansers may be used without damaging the surface. These include alcohol, naphtha, and bleach. Abrasive household cleansers and steel wool should be avoided.
