My 06gt brand new had some rain spots that would not come out. I used the ragg top dressing and now the top is a deep black and looks better then when i drove it off the lot. this stuff is great if any one cares.
I have a 1998 convertible. I bought a top cleaner and did see any difference between the top cleaner and just washing it with a good car wash. The original top lasted ten years and the car was an outdoor car. I was told by multiple places the generally you only get 5 yrs out of a top when th ecar is out doors. So normal washing and drying have worked for me.
i just recently bought my first convertible with a while top and man was she black as nite. i went out and bought spray-nine and deluted it with water and did a lil scrubbing and man she came out brand spanking new. im happy for the original top being 18 years old. theres a good product out there call RAGGTOP thats sold over the net. Cleaner and conditioner i havent bought it yet but from what i hear its top notch. good luck.
First off, welcome to the forums! You can use armor all. I used to use a convertible top cleaner/protector that I bought from Advance Auto that did a nice job, but I cannot remember the brand name. There are several products out there that do well on the tops.
In an interstellar burst, I'm back to save the universe.
Hiya, welcome to the site. You can use Armor All, just know it'll probably wash down when it rains. I'd use a convertible top treatment instead.

2003 Mustang Convertible Your sassy moderator chica is back
I had a white top that I just used mild soap and water on to clean. Did a good job. Soft bristle brush helps out, also. I've been told to use Scotchguard on a top to help protect/condition it. Does anyone know if this is true?
When I was detailing used cars for Ayers Chevy up in Edmond about 30 years ago, we would dress the top with Turtle Wax brand Tire Wax. The stuff came in 5 gallon buckets with a pump on top to dispense. Although it did not say Turtle Wax, it was identical with the tire wax in the green bottle at the auto parts store. Chemistry for auto reconditioning has change so much since then, Its like comparing WW II with Iraq. One of the advertisers on this site A1Auto has a link for convertible tops and the top cleaner and conditioner they sell is probably the best stuff I have used in 30 years.
As a side note, most of the "protectorants" that are used for tires and under the hood are to strong and will cause breakdown of the material that todays' tops are made of.

RAGGTOP to clean and treat it and 303 to maintain it ... 303 will keep nice and black and will repel water and dirt ... very very easy to take care of!!! also use 303 on leather and rubber. Great product!!!
