very true...vinylex is NOT a cleaner and mainly a protectant, and it is the best protectant at that.

That's weird that

Vinylex doesn't work for you guys. I use it to clean my doors and it gets rid of all the dirt and scuff marks. I love that product

Vinylex??

I just detailed my car today in and out. I tried that vinylex for the first time and i must say it's a very good product. I just used a leather/leatherette cleaner first and then i applied the vinylex as a protectant for my leatherette. But i must say it too "greasy". I put it on all the seats and it makes it kinda slippery. hahah. That cleaner i have is just any old cleaner for leather and vinyl stuff i found at pep boys. And it does get rid of the scuff marks.
