Default Hull cleaner? What's the best product

What is the best hull cleaner? Something to get scum off after a couple of days in the water?

On & Off is the best. Use it with a long handled brush and don't breathe in the fumes.

iron out at your local walmart in the cleaner section. cheap and works great. designed to remove iron stains in your toilet.

agreed! just make sure you throw a coat of wax on after because on off takes everything off the hull!

I use Slimmy Grimmy it does a great job, and a little less toxic than on-off.

+1 for power one. I used toilet bowl cleaner with good results but prefer not burning my skin after a day on the water. acid + sunburn = uncomfortable!! I know p1 has some form of acid but its not anywhere near like having snow bowl mist on your back!

Without a doubt Hula's hull cleaner:

Safe, non-acid product that works wonderfully. My hull needed some serious attention and it worked wonders.

I think he's a sponsor.

Default Hull cleaner

Where do u buy power one? I currently used aluminum bright and fiberglass cleaner, comes in a gallon from my local ace hardware, yes it's a acid base product, has 3 different ones, would love to find something not as harsh, is there such a thing?

Also what to use to clean up my alum. Trailer, I use this stuff as well but it looks like the trailer has been hit with eggs after it drys, need something better, prefer something to spray on and wash off?
