Right on. Soft Scrub w/Bleech works good just make sure you wear old clothes with all that bleech splashing around

Or, wear new clothes and make them old in a second.

I've tried all of the above with minimal success. I bought some rubrail material that had been drenched by the sun for more than a couple seasons. (I know, I know, why would I do that? It was the only one that gave the Martini a more modern look and it fit perfectly!)

I think I may have to actually remove some material to get the yellowing out. Thankfully it's only in a couple of spots. Any suggestions?

I guess we need to know what's on the rub rail in the first place? Around here you pull up to creosote soaked pilings, and the wave and tide action leaves nice dark brown stains on it. Lacquer Thinner is the only thing that brought my rub rail (the rubber portion of it) back to white. Soft scrub w/ bleach did nothing but make my arm sore.
