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

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.
