Exactly as you said. Make sure to have a very plush microfiber or bonnet, there is a lot of excess material when working on non-skid. If some remains after waxing, give the deck a quick scrub with a...

Just like your smooth gelcoat, you should wax the non-skid every few months. It will help prevent stains from requiring heavy cleaners to remove. Also, rinse the deck early and often!

Big updates!

JiminAZ,

The method would be the same as what I advised ShawnQ. The wool would get into the gullets as well as anything else. A quick tip is to hit an area from both sides of the diamond pattern....
