It's nasty stuff, so you need to rinse it off and dry the vinyl. I thought the results were ok. Even the grime trapped in the Oatmeal grain came out, after a few repeated applications.

I would be a bit concerned with 45-year old plastic that this might upset the minimal remaining ability to remain pliable. In addition to your rinse, you might want to consider some plastic restorer.
