Hypalon stains-best cleaner?

Brand new mercury hypalon dinghy has diesel exhaust stains after towing for a week. I tried an Orca 2 part cleaner for hypalon inflatables to no avail. Anyone have advice on cleaning stains from hypalon?

Yep, spray it on, give it a light scrub with a soft brush, rinse it off. Done. Makes my 10 year old RIB look new (except for the patches...)

Re: Hypalon stains-best cleaner?

Lacquer thinner on a soft rag, like a washcloth, and rub! If it's just diesel exhaust, I'm surprised it didn't wash off with dishwashing detergent. But you can use lacquer thinner on hypalon safely to the hypalon.
