I've been using Starbrite nonskid deck cleaner for cleaning the decks. For stuborn stains, I use barkeepers friend powder in the tough to clean spots first.

^+1

It also works on non-textured f/g and painted surfaces, vinyl and even on wheels to remove brake dust.

Plus, you don't have to "Thoroughly rinse decks with heavy spray of water to remove excess (slippery as crap) wax" or "Dry decks with cotton towels."

Spread it on a damp deck, leave it alone for a few minutes to let the chelating agents break the dirt loose from the deck, scrub lightly with a deck brush, rinse and you're good to go with a protective (non-slippery) PTEF barrier against stains, fish blood, UV rays, spilled soda, etc etc etc

The bottle isn't as pretty as Woody's, but it works great and is priced right.

Bill at Starbrite is obviously biased, but he is 100% correct. Awesome stuff!

1st time I've seen bill be rather "THT" in his comments - c'mon bill just state what makes your stuff great and leave the others alone...

THT? Sorry. Tell you what, to make up for that, I'll send a free bottle of our awesome deck cleaner to the first 9 people that respond. Glen gets bottle #1. Send me a PM with a shipping address.

Yes but when it slides off the deck or falls off the ladder onto a concrete pad it cracks and the product leaks out!

yeah, there is that ^. We actually make the bottles in-house, but we're not going to make them so thick they bounce, so be careful where you set it down.

4 responses so far.

Soft Scrub, Starbrite & Krazy Clen is great. ALso a 50/50 mix of bleach and water can not be beat.
