Fiberglass boat cleaners
 
Is it safe to use common cleaners like Bleach, Vinegar, 409, and other household cleaners on a boat and should I rinse them off or can I get away with just spraying and wiping? I'm going to clean my bilge tomorrow and would like to know what is safe.

And is there a fast and easy way to clean the head and hoses to eliminate some of the smell? or should they be replaced?

Thanks

There are chemicals designed for heads sold at boat storesto stop most oders, other than that spray 9 works wonders around the boat

No problem with using the standard household cleaners. Always a good idea to rinse well after using anthing strong.

Some time ago on this board somebody mentioned getting Tilex, spraying down the boat with it and just rinsing. I'm going to give it a try.
