Default Got black streaks from the rain?

The rain and the outdoor dust and crud that accumulates on your white fiberglass is heck to get off. I even tried bleach and soap on one spot to no avail. My decks are hose down white FG. Cool huh? Not if you can't get that gray grunge off.


Well StarBrite makes a product called black streak (go figure) remover. Hey, this stuff is purty near wipe on wipe off .



My boat is white again.

The struggle is real with white fiberglass!! I feel like I cant keep it clean. Takes alot of elbow grease just to get the top layer of grime off.

Wondering now if there's something I don't know about for cleaning the inside of my aluminum boat. I have used lots of elbow grease and some not-so-harsh cleaners, to no avail. The aluminum has dark streaks and/or stains from over the years that won't come off.....so far.


Any suggestions for this? (see on right side just under the rod holder mount).

It may be worth trying it. But somewhere in the back of my mind I remember something for aluminum that is a wipe on, wipe off. Might look into metal fabrication stuff as a pre-cleaner before welding
