How to remove leaf stains from fiberglass decks


Bob Oldefest asked:

Will your waterline stain remover be acceptable to remove leaf stains from fiberglass decks. Will it kill it shine on the gelcoat gloss.
Boat clean plus doesn’t work so well.

Yes, Waterline Stain Remover will remove tough tannin leaf stains from fiberglass, without damaging the fiberglass.

Scrub the area first with Boat Clean Plus, full strength, to remove any wax or polish and rinse with water. Apply Waterline Stain Remover to the stain, being careful that it does not come into contact with chrome, stainless steel or aluminum. You will have to keep it wet with Waterline Stain Remover, up to 30 minutes, and you may require several applications if the stains are old or well set, until the stain is removed. Rinse well with water.

After, scrub the area with Boat Scrub, full strength and a Marine Power Mitt, sponge or rag and reapply Sure Step or the same polish that you had before.

Thanks for your question,
