How To Clean a Jeep Rag Top

Claire Bush

To keep your Jeep or SUV rag top in good shape, follow these instructions.

  • When you're washing the rest of the car, use mild dishwashing soap and water and a soft-handled brush to clean the top. At the car wash, use the scrub brush and follow with a soft cotton cloth to dry. Cloth diapers are good since they don't pick up lint.

  • Don't use ordinary cleaning solvents. These often contain alcohol which can dull the finish.
  • Several products have been formulated especially for cleaning jeep tops. Visit or for details.

  • Waterless hand cleaners such as GoJo (available in hardware stores) will remove stubborn stains and grease. Use a small amount, and test an area first. Finish with a thorough washing with mild soap and water and rinse.
  • Prevention is key. Don't let the top get too dirty or the ingrained grime will be harder to remove.
