Default Vinyl stains

All,
I've got several areas of outside vinyl upholstery (bow cushions). Every year (but this year is the worst) I get pink(ish) stains that I cannot remove, despite trying every sort of cleaner I can think of. I can remove these cushions for cleaning so I'm not limited to lake-friendly sorts of cleaners. Thoughts on what this might be and how to clean?

Could be sun screen, I've been told there is also pink mold but I've never seen it.

https://gestaltscientific.com/ This is a relatively new product that's supposed to address the problem. Have not tried it.

Have ordered this product. A review by a reputable boating magazine was positive. Will post my own review after I try it.

Try using Soft Scrub. Apply to a sponge/ towel . (do not apply to he stain on the cushion) Wipe the area and rinse.
