Question Bird Poo

Anybody out there got any thoughts on how to get bird poo stains out. Had the boat in storage alone with a red robin so as you can will imagine the top side is cover from bow to stern. Washed with a boat cleaner but there is still a stain were there was poo. Help please.

Sunny you might try a bit of bleach in a spray bottle, rinse well.

It will go away with sun exposure over time. Maybe spray with lemon juice? Thats what we do for my son's poopy diapers when they start getteing stained. Lemon juice and sun...

Goes away over time. The trick is to keep flying rats away from the boat. I have a few CD disks hanging on nylon threads, turning with a wind. Seems to work fairly well.

Try Roll Off and a good brushing.

Poop Removal

I've had good luck with Greased Lightening.

Try it first in an inconspicuous area. It's powerful stuff and not available in all States.

I've found Meguiar's non-skid deck cleaner to work well. As the others mentioned, the sun will bleach what remains.

Try peroxide. Test it on a small spot first. It will remove a lot of stains.

If other methods fail, go with the original:
