Bilge Cleaner and Keel Bolts

Hello Gurus,
I'm suffering from a smelly and slimy bilge in my C&C 30. Looking for an easy way out, I bought an eco-friendly bilge cleaner from West Marine thinking that I would pure some in and let it soak for a while but I'm a bit concerned about my Keel Bolts. The SS keel bolts are still shiny and spotless even after 34 years and I don't want to pure something in the bilge that could possibly have corrosive effects. Am I worrying too much or should I just bite the bullet and start brushing away with some fresh water and Dawn for a few hours?

Thanks as always,
Aaron
