Does anyone have a suggestion for cleaning the top lid and kick panel of a Wurlitzer spinet ?
It appears to be some type of fabric with a lot of
texture to it. At the moment it is whitish indicating someones failed attempt to clean it or just mildew related staining. I an thinking that some type of automobile leather cleaner may work. Maybe someone knows what his material is. It is an older spinet made in the US.

Try a leather/vinyl cleaner. I think this stuff is vinyl. (test small area first) You could also remove the material and replace it. Not too hard to do. Vinyl like it can be had at a fabric store.

Yup, I would bet on it being vinyl as that was all the rage for a while ;\)
