Make it white again

I was on my roof today, TPO membrane. Scrubbed it hard with Simple Green. It took most of the black off the joints, but once I rinsed it off there is a nice white area where the antenna covers it, the rest is a dingy gray.

What can I use to bring the white back? Even the lap seams have gray patches where they didn't come white. I want to get it as clean as I can before wiping it all down with UV protectant.

The whitest my roof has been is from using some Dawn dish soap and a half a cup of Borax in a bucket of hot water.

Haven't tried Borax yet. Dawn didn't make much difference last time I tried. I know what the roof should look like, there is a nice pattern where the antenna lays that is pure white.

Yes. It will also remove black streaks on sides with ease.
