    I have a soft tonneau cover that's about a year old. No matter how many times I wash the truck, it still looks like it has a film of dirt on it and its starting to look quite brown.

    Anyone have any suggestions on how to clean it and bring it back to the original black color.

    I've used a product called back to black for faded plastic parts on other cars, but I'm scared to use it on the cover.

    Any suggestions?

    I am not kidding about this....spray Lemon Pledge on it and wipe it off. I have never found anything better to restore automotive black vinyl and plastic.

    Excellent advice. I was looking for some specialized product to keep my OEM TC protected, as here in TX, summers are really hard for all plastic parts. Luckily for me I have covered garage (at home and work), but still is hard when I have to park outside or when I'm on the road. Thanks!
