Varnish on Bimini

Dock mate varnished his teak and splashed varnish on my bimini, which is Sunbrella.
I have tried acetone, gasoline, and about everything else I could think of. Nothing works.
I called Sunbrella and they said that nothing I would use would harm the color of the cloth.
Any help would be appreciated

Citrus paint stripper. Test in small spot first but should be fine.
