Careful vacuuming of the top before washing is helpful in removing dust and other foreign particles.

If Hand Washing:

• Wash in partial shade instead of direct sun.

• Wet the entire vehicle before washing the top.

• Wash the top with a soft, natural bristle scrub brush, and a mild soap solution such as liquid dish washing soap. Do not use detergent.

• Scrub in all directions, covering an area of about two square feet at a time. Avoid heavy scrubbing.

• Rinse the entire vehicle with water to remove all soap and dirt from the top fabric and to prevent streaking on painted and chrome surfaces.

• Allow the top to dry before opening. Vacuuming the top with a wet/dry shop vacuum will decrease the tops drying time, ensure removal of all dirt, and delete streaks in the material.

• Multiple cleanings may be necessary to remove stubborn stains. If stains persist, contact your local authorized dealership for further suggestions.

CAUTION!
Never use an abrasive type cleaner or bleaches.

Cleaners should not contain silicones, organic solvents, petroleum distillates, or plasticizers. Always wait until the top is thoroughly dry before opening it.
