I remember I got advised once to pull the seats out of my finny and use a pressure washer with soap and then give it a scrub. Err, didn't work out how I thought. The cardboard that is sewn into the seat covers and tucks in under a metal flap to hold them onto the seat frame got wet and came out, and they never really fit that well again. So just don't do that!
Cheers, Drew

Use hot water.

Get the water as hot a possible without burning yourself - makes a huge difference and allows you to not have to apply the same of amount of (damaging) force with the brush.

Another tip is those small hand held steamers, there are amazing for removing old hardened grit.
