Softscrub again...

If you have a painted hull, I would test the whether or not the SC scratches the finish. I would be very careful with it on Awlgrip. SC has calcium carbonate as the "abrasive" which is "soft" as far as hardness, but Awlgrip is very sensitive to abrasion.

On gelcoat, there is no issue.

eryka Our hull is painted so maybe our needs are different. I'm with Dr B. The Shaklee product I mentioned is just the organic version of softscrub. We used it every day when we had the kitchen/bath remodel company - and because we were exposed so much, we were finickier about using organic products. Now with just occaisional exposure, I'd probably use Softscrub - easier to find.

Gotta try Windex next tho!

HatterasJack Guys,
Have tried everything to remove black streakes from both camper and Boat. Even removed finnish on camper to the bare metal in one spot!! Cleaner was too harsh. One day at a camp ground an old lady was ambiling around her motor home with a spray bottle of WINDEX!!!! I thought can't be that simple!!! I went over to inspect her spray application and remopval with a paper towel of ALL black streaks with no effort at all! 10 min. she was done and the motor home looked new!! She said all the young people try that fancy stuff but this works the best. I was floored!!!! She also said that if you have bad black streakes on any fiberglas parts that Fantastic works, full strenth then wipe off and rinse with plain water. I tried it. Both work GREAT!!!

SVlagniappe Another product to consider is Davis FSR.

Marine and Boating Products by Davis

I've used it to remove the ICW mustache, and stains from the under the A/C discharge as well as black streaks. This stuff is magic.
