Try "Orange Glo" furniture polish. (Walmart or various other stores.) I've used it successfully on my hands and on some lawn furniture.

This is a little off subject, but I think informative... I bought a Fox Helmet a couple years back that was the "matte" finish, it was a great helmet until I rode in woods that where dripping sap... The helmet was never the same. I can not get all the sap off because of the matte finish, I will always buy the gloss finish paints...:prof:

Dish soap should work. You just have to get the water as hot as you can stand it. My cousin had a 93 Timberwolf with the white/off white seat that stained BAD. Our grandfather used extremely hot water and dish soap and it looked like new. Cold water and soap wouldn't clean it.
