Re: Anyone tried Star Brite Instant Hull Cleaner?

I've used Mary Kate On Off, FSR and a lot of other products for that kind of cleaning, all contain acid of one type or the other, not one has ever hurt a paint.
IIRC oxalic acid attacks proteins - i.e. not paint. FSR is basically rubbing alcohol and oxalic acid in a gel. It didn't even mess with my varnish but it cleaned the heck out of the slime and such on the ring around the bottom and my topsides.
I don't use Balto so can't swear to that.
