Default cleaner

this past weekend I used a product called Slimy Grimy which you mix a powder and appy with a sprayer. Got the brown scum off easily and quickly. Best part its bio degradable trailer and lift safe. I was on a raft under the lift with no issues

I use Iron Out. You can buy it at Home Depot in the plumbing section. Mix it with water in a pump sprayer and then spray it on. The stain drips right off.

Got my gallon this weekend. Stuff works great. Just like ON/OFF but without the harsh smell or burn. Also works great on all the stainless hardware on the transom...surface rust dripped off and left it nice and shiney.

Will it take black soot off of transom? Havn't found anything that will.

I just put this stuff on a rag and wiped it on a dry surface and the stains disappear. Anyone ever use this product?
WOW! I ordered a bottle from Heater63 last week and just got a chance to use it this morning. I am ordering a gallon now. The pictures were taken this morning and it was dark with shadows, but hopefully you can make out the difference between on the left which was untreated and on the right which was sprayed on and hosed off. I had a scum line that I could not get out, and it has been driving me crazy. Have tried On & Off (the spray and the blue gel), the Leverage cleaners and countless others. This stuff is fantastic! I went over it again and rubbed with a terry cloth towel and that showed even better results. I then did both sides, the hull and transom --which did a great job removing the oil residue from my outboards. I have not seen my hull this white from any of the other products.

The only downside I found was it did not seem to like the diamond plate over my wheels. Did not effect any of the galvanized areas (I admit, I have gotten On & Off on galvanized before and watched it turn black), but you can see the run off line. I did start to clean it and it came off fine but who wants to cover anything when you are cleaning your boat?

I used half the bottle for the entire boat. I did it bare handed, did not have to hold my breath like with On & Off and even got some in my eyes thanks to a gust of wind when I was getting an awkward spot under the hull. I probably would still be washing the On & Off out of my eyes right now.

Very, very good product.
