Product Spotlight: RaggTopp Vinyl Cleaner

If they are harmless to the finish, then they fail to properly clean soils and stains from the vinyl. Finally, there is a product that accomplishes the job without doing untold damage in the process. It’s called the RaggTopp Convertible Top Cleaner and Vinyl Protectant Kit, and it is a one-of-a-kind solution to the cleaning and care issues that nearly every convertible driver has faced.
