Alternative to Awl Wash

I have a boat with a recent Awlgrip topsides finish that looks great.

The boat will be hauled on Friday and I would like to clean the topsides.

I have been told that I cannot import Awl Wash into Canada due to labelling issues related to French/English hazard identification.

Are there any recommended alternatives to Awl Wash or should I just use soap and water?
