I am not sure that magic erasers would work as the could scratch the vinyl unless you used them when they where wet.

If the vinyl is white (not painted), I would recommend using an ear bud with acetone on a small part and see if that works.

With either option you will need to polish it a bit afterwards.

Good luck!

Ditto on the tire white. Just be fast with a hose or it will yellow.

Magic Erasers work !!!!Just be gentle!!Acetone cracks the vinyl over time ...

I agree, Magic erasers would probably work best and are not too abrasive. Oxyclean or a concentrate detergent used mildly with Magic eraser maybe the most dexterous method without comprimising material finish. After drying coat vinyl with aerospace UV protectant.


Regards & good luck,

There is an amazing product by 3M called citrus cleaner and degreaser in spray canister form, works a treat on hundreds of marks, especially good on vinyl. You can always condition/wax the material after.
