    Monkey fur sourcing

    anyone knows the name of the fabric and where to buy some monkey fur? Have some stained pieces and can't seem feasible to clean - I tried bleach, alcohol, etc with little luck so at this point I'm really inclined on replacing it but can't seem to find anything locally, if any of you sourced some online I'd appreciate any pointers you might be able to provide. Thanks in advance.

    I had good luck with simple green. Now be aware, simple green will attack polycarbonate, don't get it on windows or engine gauges.

            Thanks guys - I was hoping there was some generic option rather than marine specialty, I guess I will have to look that way in the end, nothing urgent but I would def love if I can get something on there that doesn't carry stains accumulated over a 30 year period. I'll put a note here if I find anything that works besides the usual headliner replacements. Thanks again.

              You may try to search an RV storeā€¦. They offer headliner material for campers and trailers. Might be a bit less expensive.

                  Try: "Mildew stain and mold stain remover " by ZEP, sold at Home Depot. Try it as it comes, and if it does not work, add a small amout of bleach to it. Spray iy on, use a bristle brush to lightlt scrubn the material, then walk way fro an hour or two. Repeat as necessary.
                  For general cleaning of the fur, I have a carpet shampooer, with a "furnature wand". I use thier shampoo as directed. Sometimes needs two applications

                    Just wondering.... has anyone tried a small steam cleaner to get mold off the monkey fur? Something like:

                      The black might not be mold. On my boat it appears near crevices where air flow through occurs and its actually just dirt. The monkey fur becomes filter element material in those sections. I experimented by applying dish soap in water, very dilute, worked it in with terry cloth and vacuumed it out with wet/dry vac rinsing with clear water as I went. Cleaned right up! Since then I've been happy just knowing I can clean it when I get around to it. Might not ever get around to it but happy to know I could.
