Does anyone have a secret method to prevention and/or cleaning the non-skid deck surfaces? I am having trouble with blood (fish blood) and asphalt tar from the ramp parking lot.

I've used a variety of cleaners, such as "goo-off" "simple Green" "bartenders friend" and "on/off" to clean the surface of the nonskid. I do not use "orange clean" or other citrus cleaners because it does trippy things to light colored plastic, like the rub rail trim. Once the surface is clean, I use 3m "color restorer" with a SOFT bristle brush, with a top coat of teflon wax, again with the brush. The non-skid is a little slippery for a few days, but as the wax wears out on the top of the non-skid, it grips again. The main benefit is that it looks great, and resists new stains, especially blood. The stains that do get through are easier to clean.

I reccomend Starbrite Non-Skid Deck cleaner, it works really well. One/Half bottle got my floo I would say over 70-80% clean, and it had some ground in dirt, I am really impressed with this product :) Jack.

I second the Starbright Non-Skid cleaner--its a third of the price of 3M's version at WalMart and I think it works better! Real tough spots I use Spic&Span.
