Cleaning woodstain off fiberglass?

Unfortunately for me, I had some woodstain splash on my boat while I was restaining my wood railings. I tried bleach, degreaser, compound, you name it. I just cant seem to get that stain off no matter what I try. Anyone have any recommendations on what I can use to clean this woodstain off my boat?

Re: Cleaning woodstain off fiberglass?

Yes, depends on the type of stain which can be alcohol, oil or whatever base.
Try in this order:
denatured alcohol
paint thinner/turpentine
acetone
Interlux 216 'special' thinner

On-Off which is a highly acidic hull treatment might even work (or Bartender's Friend).

You can also use some very fine grit (high grit #, 300, 400, 600 ...1000) sandpaper in some cases if it is gel coat.
