Canvas Cleaner and Protector

Recommended Posts

My canvas is getting dirty and losing its water proofing abilities, just before i head to Porsche and get their cleaner and protector solutions, would like to check with you guys out there if the solutions are easy to use. Also if there is any brands out there that you guys find it more effective and easy to use compared to Porsche's. Thanks

The key with our convertible tops is not to wash them with any soaps. You should use just water and when dry, run the sticky tape over it. It's the soaps that kill the fabric. Covered parking helps a ton too.

hey that's what i do too! just water and when dry, run my lint remover roller for suits and jackets to remove any dust or cloth bit remains over the canvas. that does help for a while. however i notice using sticky tapes or the rollers too often seems to remove some parts of the canvas as well although not so significant. maybe i just wanted to clean the canvas the proper way.

For the Porsche protector, I need to buy the whole aluminium case of car care kit together with some leather and windscreen products which i already have using some other brands with i am comfortable with, and i only needed the Porsche cleaner and protector which i cannot buy separately, or at least over at my side of the world.

So i guess i have to buy Raggtopp kit instead. One question, does the solvents (cleaner or protector) harms the car paintwork, glass, rubber seals or plastic parts of the car if i accidentally left some on them and forgets to wipe them away? I know Raggtopp says it doesn't, but is Porsche stuff harmful ?

I may get it wrong, our Canvas is made from Cloth (Fabric not Vinyl) and it is from Haartz known as Sonnenland. Anyone knows which Sonnenland variant?

All I know is that our canvas is made from 3 ply material - Acrylic exterior cloth, elastomeric/rubber film, and the interior lining cloth.
