I think my boat upholstery is Draylon.

Any ideas on the best upholstery cleaner to use.

Mine is getting rather long in the tooth and I cannot take it apart for proper cleaning.

Am willing to risk the most powerful.

Thanks in advance.

The best one I found was in Spain - not much good to you.

I use any car upholstery cleaner on my Dralon with good results.

The secret is to get a good foam with plenty of scrubbing (some come with brush-heads), leave it long enough for the foam to disappear and then wipe off using a frequently rinsed sponge cloth.

takes a long time to dry in the boat, so suggest putting cushions in the sun, on deck, tied down!!!
Last most important... though cushions float....

B&Q carpet shampoo, around £5 for 5 litres, carpets uphostery, and have also used for canopies. follow instructions and mix with loads of hot water. Use garden type sprayer to apply, rub in and vacuum off dirty foam with wet and dry vacuum. Keep going over very dirty areas a few more times. Basically you need to suck up as much dirty foam as possible. I use dehumidifier to dry out if needed to speed up the drying process. excellent results.
Leave until totally dry otherwise dirt will stick to the wet bits again and you will be forever cleaning
