Good feedback. It has always worried me. Thanks.

We have so little that you don't notice it in the bright sunshine. I see it when cleaning and always way to start the season in bristol condition. Never do though.

OK, LOL, impressive how HSN oversells functionality. It is NOT as great as they say but certainly I am getting my $15 out of it. It is NOT a mini pressure washer. The pressure from the typical marina is HALF of what is shown here. But it does work dandy I must say. The dispenser is the best part of the functionality, it works well.

Thanks for the posting

Ammonia, vinegar and "grated" clean soap (not mixed together, obviously). And a lot of scrubbing with different brushes.

Re: Go-To boat cleaner

No one uses Tilex or such bathroom cleaner on their non-skid? I never have, mostly for fear of the chlorine doing bad things to the teak or paint. But, I'm tempted this year to get at those little black spec mold things we all get bits of. Maybe try to contain it and mop it back up with a wet rag, rather than hose off.

Anyway, I'm thinking that none of the products above, including my go-to, does anything for the non-skid black stuff. (someone is going to remind me what its called)

Probably true, but you would have to play with the concentration. You wouldn't dilute it like in a bucket or you would have to put dozen of sprays to equal the quantity typically on a brush.

Re: Go-To boat cleaner

Kelly, try partially blocking the water inlet hole (e.g., with plastic wrap, or a plastic grocery bag) to reduce the concentration of soap that gets into the water.

Sheets on the deck create little dams that trap dirt and crap.
my boat is on the hard so it's easy to collect dirt. I have a couple loose lines on my boat and the one for the main sheet, I had to tie up higher to keep from dirt lines getting on the boat. I still have a lot of scrubbing to do anyway.
