Default Non-skid Cleaner

Bought a bottle and tried it out - loved it. Two questions:

1. Is the non-skid cleaner effective/safe for vinyl?

2. Do you have a brush on/spray off wax (like Woody Wax)?

Yes to both;

1) Nonskid Deck Cleaner is an excellent all-surface cleanert for vinyl, fiberglass, painted surfaces, metals, etc I have used it to clean canvas bimini tops. The chelating agents break the bond holding dirt to the surface without heavy scrubbing or the use of caustic chemicals, bleach or acids

2) We have a new product - NonSkid Deck Wax to be applied afterwards.

Is the wax brush on/rinse off?

Can you share with us the benefits of the wax? Does it make future stains easier to remove? I've only used your cleaner.

Also, is this product going to be on amazon anytime soon? I would normally try and buy local, but I just checked your website and there are no dealers within 50 miles of me in Orlando.

The Nonskid Deck Wax is a brand new product, so it is just now getting into distribution channels, to include brick & mortar retailers as well as online merchants.

The intent of the Deck Wax is to provide a non-slippery protective barrier that also enhances the appearance of textured decks.
By using it and the polymers in the non skid deck cleaner, you'll have more protection against stains and UV exposure.

Any chance I could buy a bottle from you while the distribution network gets caught up?

I use it every time I wash the deck. Anything you spray on will not last all that long. When you compare a spray-on product to a traditional polish, the results and longevity are directly tied tot he effort required to use it.

Ess, the Nonskid Deck Wax can be applied to any textured surface, painted or fiberglass.

I had never used non skid deck cleaner until a couple weeks ago and was amazed how much better it worked then just using boat soap. I believe I have the same stuff by star brite pictured above. ill have to try the deck wax too

While soaps are great for cleaning, we have found that they don't have the 'horsepower' to clean textured surfaces. The Non Skid Deck Cleaner is not a soap, which is why it doesn't form suds. It uses chelating agents that break the bond holding the dirt so that it can be lifted and more easily removed - without hard scrubbing action in most cases. Exceptions include dried-in blood that has been cooking in the sun for weeks may well require heavy scrubbing and/or one of our boat scuff erasers.

FWIW you can use the Non Skid Deck Cleaner of vinyl bolsters, cushions and most other surfaces. No bleach or scary acids makes it a safe choice.
