Cleaning the Deck...what to use?

OK...so my deck is not perfect, being a 36 year old boat its amazing actually. In its mooring its a target for the birds...I get a few presents a day from the seagulls. What the best thing I can use to clean the deck? Is there anything I can do to get it WHITE again? Now its slightly yellow.

Roll Off?
Works for me so far. Better than most other cleaners have done for me and not to horribly expensive by the gallon.
As far as I know it won't damage anything if used properly.

Anyone else have information on Roll Off?

Do you mean Marykate On and Off? If so, its an acid and should be used carefully. Great for removing waterline and rust stains. Softens barnacle and calcium deposits from some birds. Not sure it would be my first choice for general cleaning.

I used to use **** and Span cuz it's inexpensive and doesn't make suds.

Lately, I've been using Star Brite's Non-Skid deck cleaner. Works very well, but it's not cheap. It does a good job of basic cleaning and seems to do a good job of getting rid of the stains from bird poop.I have a small sprayer bottle tied to my belt when I clean my deck and just spray it directly on my boat brush. I do an area, rinse, and move on.

No, not on and off. Roll Off.

I got west marine Eco friendly non slip deck cleaner. Used it today an I am pretty pleased with the results. I could get a bit whiter though but it is a 36 year old boat. Lol.
