ON/OFF. Just keep it off your hands. Works AMAZINGLY well

No , On/off bottom cleaner. It's an acidic cleaner good for stains on the bottom of boats. Kinda nasty stuff to work with

You can get it at Boat US and West I believe. Wear gloves and wash VERY well!!! You will be amazed at how well it brings your deck back. Will look like new

Any problem with using this around painted areas? The sides of my hull are painted in a base/clear and I would hate to have something eat that up I would be worried that during rinsing that the residue might cause some problems.....Thoughts?

Another one that an old salt showed me was to take a bit of Comet sink cleaner, and use it on white non-skid. Probably not the best thing to use, but man it looked fantastic in about 5 minutes! I had previously used many cleaners for hours of scrubbing. I haven't tried it on my new boat, but I used it once a year for the spring cleaning on my old boat.

I've got the same problem. Just bought some non skid deck cleaner at the local boat supply shop. More than likely its the same as other cleaners I've tried just with anoth name. I', going to give it a try this weekend so I'll let you know how it works.

I've got friends that swear by a product called Amazing Roll Off. I tried it once last summer and it did a great job on my non-skid. Marykate On/Off works great too, but it's really nasty to work with.

Ever try Spray Nine? I've used that on my non-skid and it seems to get the job done. Also will take off any black residue from exhaust around the silent thunder ports.

Just a thought.
