    Default Deck stain remover?

    What's the best stain remover for a fiberglass boat? Somehow leaves got up under my tarp this winter and left a mess. Thanks

    Probably something more "official," but I've had good luck with household Comet and a moist rag, or a green Scotch pad if the stain is really tough.

    Hull Cleaner by Starbrite. It has oxalic acid in it and almost as soon as I pour some (or sponge some) onto stains on my hull they disappear. If you have a galvanized trailer, be sure to wet it down or wash off frequently if you drip the stuff on it because it will cause some etching of the metal.

    +1 on the Starbright Hull Cleaner. Sponge it on, let sit a bit if needed, and rinse off. Wear goggles and gloves when using this stuff!!!!!!!!

    I have found that since school is out $20 to pay some neighborhood kid to clean it with a tooth brush works best.

    oxalic acid aka wood bleach, get it at a paint store and mix up only what you need or get a couple of bottles of this stuff at walmart

    FSR has the same oxalic acid agent and works well for most organic stains plus rust but more expensive than Steve's solution. The only advantage may be it's a bit thicker so doesn't sag or run much.
