    how to remove stains from vinyl?

    hello all.
    i emptied my pool 2 years ego and stupidly enough i folded the vinyl and left it outside in the winter rains and summer sun. now there are brown stains that wont scrub out. i tried putting bleach on a sponge and scrub but the stains couldn't care less. any suggestions?
    thank you.

    Welcome to the forum!

    You might try a dilute solution of Muriatic acid on the stains to see if that helps, but I'm not sure what to suggest beyond that. Sorry I don't have a better answer.

    Magic eraser? Just use care as it can be quite abrasive.

    the Magic eraser sponge did nothing to it. also tried bleach gel and let it work for 10 minutes, nothing. not sure what Muriatic is and where can i buy it (not on line it will take forever).
    i included a photo, maybe someone can identefy this monster.
    tnx again for all the help.
