Re: Cleaning PVC Winch Handle Holders
If they're really bad use MEK solvent (Methyl Ethyl Ketone). It is nasty stuff - kind of ammoniac and extremely volatile. It is so strong it will actually soften the PVC or vinyl for a short time - you can actually smooth out minor scuffs & dings.
After the piece re-hardens, wipe it with Armor All or similar.
You will be amazed. It's the ONLY thing to use on old, scuffed up, vinyl rub rail inserts. They come out looking near new.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
