“It rained before I finished the Ultra Proofer!”

Hello Greg,

No need to worry! This is a common issue, as it is rather difficult to predict the weather changes!

The amount of Ultra Proofer that was washed out will depend on the amount of rain that fell. Ultra Proofer is a water based product so the rainfall would have diluted its capabilities.  Therefore the best thing to do is apply another coat of Ultra Proofer to your soft top when it’s dry, this will top up the protection washed away by the rain.

However, if the surface of your soft top now looks water marked/patchy you will need to clean the soft top with Fabric Soft Top Cleaner according to the severely soiled instructions on the bottle label before starting to apply further Ultra Proofer; this may mean that a further two applications are needed to fully protect the fabric.

You can always test to see for yourself if the Ultra Proofer is working properly! Once the top is dry, simulate rain by sprinkling droplets of water on the top. If it beads, then you know the proofer is working, but if not, then you need to apply more until it does.
