Tough stains on side of Precept

I have some stains on the upper body of my Precept that probably came from tropical flowers/plants brushing up against the coach during a recent stay in the Keys.

I'm wondering what would be the best product to use to remove them. So far some of the lighter ones have washed off, but the tougher ones don't come off with soap, water & elbow grease.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

I've had pretty good luck removing stains, stubborn "stuff" using WD40. I'd suggest soap n water after using it tho and probably a little wax after that.

A product called "totally awesome" is a heavy duty cleaner/degreaser and has done wonders for me on tough stains. BE SURE to test it in a spot not easily seen prior to trying it on the stain to make sure it doesn't damage the surface. Once you have cleaned the stain, be sure to completely rinse the cleaner off, dry and wax any parts of the surface that had contact of any kind with the cleaner.

You can find it at most of the dollar stores

I have used Lemon Pledge furniture polish to remove stains with success.

WD40 and a Mr Clean magic eraser.

You'll thank me later.

HOT water hold the cloth against the stain and it should start to dissolve.

X2. On the totally awesome. Only cost a buck at the dollar store. Comes in an orange spray bottle. Gets those black streaks off too with literally one wipe. I use it for many things. It is one of the worlds best kept secrets.

You can use vinyl siding cleaner. I used it on my daughters p/u to get rid of the black on the top and side, Works great almost new looking. I used a bristle brush and some muscle. So wax on wax off
