Cleaning non-skid

I have the painted on non-skid as opposed to the molded non-skid. While I must say it does a great job of preventing slippage, it seems that it isn''t the easiest stuff in the world to get clean. Does anyone have experience with cleaning this type of deck and know the magic product that will clean it up.

Cleaning non-skid

The best I have come up with is a stiff brush and a product like Fantastic. The non-skid is designed to grip and it grips everything, including the dirt. Try to stay away from the abrasive cleaners (like Comet) as the more you clean, the thinner the finish gets. Products like Soft Scrub are better if Fantastic and elbow grease don''t do the job. Have fun!

Cleaning non-skid

several manufactures make a cleaner specifically for non-skid. it everveses to help lift the dirt out. I also use a product from Aurora Marine Products called "Sure Step" that is a non slippy "wax" specifically for non-skid. it really helps to keep it clean.
