Two Cleaning/upkeep Questions

1. Just as I feared our brand new suede-like wall covering is showing marks - mostly where the sliding door rubs against the screen door as we open and close it. But also in a few other places where we've rubbed/knocked against it or something on galley counter splashes on it. Can anyone recommend a cleaning product they like? One that won't create its own stain? I've purchased some Scotch Gard fabric spray which I obviously should've used immediately, but want to try to clean first. Then I'll test the Scotch Gard in an obscure place to make sure it doesn't stain.

2. Before we got the hang of how to properly position our driver/passenger chairs before turning them we managed to scrape the plastic door bin at the bottom of the passenger door with the metal chair frame. Is there any way to buff this damage out? It's the same material as most of the dash.

Thanks!

I would try Folex after first testing in an obscure as possble place. May try just mild soap and water 1st though.

The scrape on the passenger door won't be easily repaired and will probably require a professional. I would probably just leave it as is.

I wonder if you could brush dry carpet cleaner into it, let dry and vacuum it off. Might try it in an obscure spot.

Maybe also contact the manufacturer

I have used Simple Green with some success on the interior mouse fur. I use it neat, but try it diluted first.

Watch the movie "Fat Greek Wedding". The secret is revealed, Windex! It cleans with out staining. Been using it since the movie was released. I use it in my shop to show customers how to keep their floor matts clean. We just got back from 2 weeks boon docking and had to do a clean up up on the interior, Windex did its job!
Be clean my friend.

I had emailed the same question about cleaning the fabric to airstream. Have yet to get a response. Is there a typical turnaround time for AS to answer emails?
