Default Bilge Cleaner

Just wondering what you use to clean the bilge. Thats one of my first projects when I pick up the Formula.

Thanks

Simple Green. Works as well and most of the time better than the so called bilge cleaner sold at stores. Cheaper too...Home Depot has it by the gallon for around $9. Also Simple Green is non-caustic and will not harm rubber hoses and stuff like that.
Happy Cleaning!
Mike

I use Grease Lightning. You can buy it at Home Depot or similar stores.

Gallons of Dawn detergent from Sam's or Costco and a Mr Clean Eraser pad.

Oh yes, elbow grease.

Greased Lightning and HOT water. Disconnect your washing machine, and put the hose on the hot water.
