Default Ring Clean

I've been using Yamaha RingFree on every fill up for 12 years and my engine runs great.

I might have to try "Ring Clean" next time. I think somewhere someone asked about comparing the two?

Also I use StarTron Enzyme Fuel Treatment at the end of every year treating 90 gallons of E10 fuel. The fuel sets from November until April. I'm still using fuel from November 2016 today and have about 40 gallons left.

Great cleaning products too.

I don't think they know you're down here yet

^Yeah, we are still under the radar.

Thank you for the feedback on our products.

The Yamaha product is a good one. We set our our lead chemist loose to develop something even better. Our new Ring Clean+ combines the latest deposit removal compounds with the proprietary Star Tron enzymes. In our opinion, it represents the most powerful, yet economical way to remove deposits that occur during slow trolling or running thru miles and miles and miles of no wake zones

No questions now - but glad to see you are here.
I buy startron by the gallon - use it in the boat and lawn tools.

Is there a product i can brush or spray on the non skid that will loosen grime and blood before a light pressure wash? Something that does work while I finally get to drink a beer?

Star brite Non-Skid Deck Cleaner - shake the bottle well, squirt it onto a wet deck, let it work for a few minutes while you enjoy an adult beverage, agitate lightly with a soft brush, then rinse. Enjoy another adult beverage as you enjoy the clean deck.

What he said good stuff. I wish you had it by the gallon so I can put it in a garden sprayer.

Hey! Glad to see Starbrite on here. I use several of your products regularly. My question is this, what is available to remove mildew from my vinyl seats?

Long time lurker actually making a comment!

ETrade,

Good question.
Here is the answer:

Star brite Mildew Stain Remover
Then use Ultimate Vinyl Guard to keep them looking great.

Bill, do you have a comparable product to the VP ethanol treatment that VP recommends using to protect the crappy VP fuel pumps from the effects of ethanol related problems?

We are not aware of any product that can protect components against alcohol exposure.

I've been a fan of star-tron for some time and currently use that product. After looking on the website is says star-tron "cures and eliminates most Ethanol problems." Can you elaborate on what that means exactly?

Star Tron uses a proprietary blend of enzymes to stabilize fuel (ethanol & gasoline cannot form a chemical bond, thus requiring a stabilizer if fuel is not used for several months), break up and disperse debris such as gums, varnish and carbon from engine and fuel delivery system and it helps improve combustibility of gas (and diesel) for improved performance.

Feel free to call us at (800) 327-8583 M/F 9-5 EST with any other questions you may have.

Have you ever heard of the non-skid deck cleaner causing a chemical burn? I have used this stuff for years and love it but yesterday I cleaned the boat and later that night had huge blisters on my big toe and second toe, also on my foot. It really doesn't hurt but these blisters are huge. I am assuming some got in my shoe but it would have to have been diluted. I use very little, just splash a little on the deck and it goes a very long way. Totally great stuff but wondering if the formula has changed. I have been boatless for the last 2 years. Thanks

Sorry to hear about your feet.

There is nothing even remotely caustic in the nonskid cleaner formula; it cleans by using chelating agents, not bleach or acids. Thousands of people get it all over hands and feet while cleaning the boat and we have never - until this - ever had a comment about sensitivity to it. As you alluded, the dilution when spread over the deck and then rinsed brings it way down. But then again, some folks have more sensitive skin and weird allergies - I've seen people break out if milk is spilled on their skin. The formula has not been touched since it was first mixed many years ago.

Thanks man and I'm certainly not trying to "go anywhere" with my question. I've used it for years and still love it. Not even sure it was that but that's the only chemical I used. The blisters are still very huge but there is ZERO pain, swelling or anything else other than those water blisters. It's the craziest thing. I literally don't even know they're there. As mentioned I just got a new boat after being out of it for a couple of years and just wondered if the formula had changed. Thanks again and I will certainly continue using that product.

Will any of your products help with mildew spots that are imbedded in sealant? I have a number of places on my boat, particularly the gunwales, where the mildew is obviously not on the surface but either under or in the caulk (which is most likely marine silicone). I am a long-time user of StarTron and other StarBrite products. Keep up the good work.
