Scotland Convertible - how to clean the soft top?

Husband parked the car under a lamp post and birds have kindly peed all over the roof. He's asking how to clean this please?

I"ve been using autoglym softop cleaner for years now , its a 2 part pack first is to clean and second is to proof. My car is outside all year round and it seems to do the job

Hey,

The best option is to use Autoglym cleaning product and they even have their own Softop cleaner. They are known for their amazing cleaning abilities! So you could do that then hose it all down and that should do the trick
Hope that will help.

Thanks
