Default What to use on Soft Tonneau Cover?

What does everyone use to protect and keep it looking good?

I've used Armor All interior shine after washing it nice n good with soap and water. Not sure if this is the best for it, but it seems to be keeping it nice, black and shiney.

I use some stuff from Extang called Tonneau Tonic, puts a nice shine on there and has UV protectant. Lasts a while to. I've also used Meguires Natural Shine Protectant in the past.

I use Meguiars Supreme Shine Protectant on my TruxEdo roll up cover. It's non greasy, has UV blockers and doesn't contain silicone. Tonneau looks great after washing touueau and applying this stuff.

Thanks for the replys. This is what I've been using, wondering if I should continue to use it or switch to something else. I have no complaints about the product.

If you like it, why change. Not to mention, I think Auto Glym is supposed to be high grade stuff. I know their wax is like $20-30 at walmart

I use this, Cover All cleaner & protectant for Beachcomber Hot Tub Covers. We have it at work its what we use on hot tub covers since Armor All ruins them. Helps keep them clean and leaves it with a nice shine; I use it on my interior as well.

do you have a warrantied product?
anything with petroleum in it will void your warranty.. extang covers have a great warranty... petroleum based shines will cause the cover to breakdown and start cracking in a year or so... use water based shines
