...and damage any rubber...

Rubber gloves, Clorox Cleanup and paper towels work well.

Re: ridding bilge of sewage odor

Ditto Raritan KO ... an enzyme based chemical system ... and alternated with 'heavily CAUSTIC' soaps/detergents .... ie. Lye Soap from an agricultural supply shop - Agway, etc.
Both the enzyme based and the caustic based need SOAK TIME to work.

When finished with the 'caustic', add plenty of vinegar, then lots of water, etc. to help neutralize and dilute before pumping out.
