Default Convertible Top Care

I just purchased a 2006 with a black top. What is the best way to care for this cloth top,(cleaning & conditioning). Also I seem to get lint on it, what is the best way to remove that.

I'm new to the PT Cruiser world, but I was a little bothered that small bits of grass from my lawn mower did not get removed from my top by the drive-thru car wash. I guess I need to get a brush of some sort or a vacuum. Hope that does the trick.

I'd like to know about conditioning too.

IF I remember correctly, one of the guys (Candyman) did a writeup on the care of 'vert tops, you may have to do a SEARCH for it, or maybe it was set up as a sticky.

Cool Re: Convertible Top Care

REgular soft brsh (how I wash the whole car) is fine for a normal wash.
If you have stuff stuck on....using a clean like RaggTopp recommends a vacuum first, they cleaner with soft brush, as instructions say...
