Yes. And without the "work" i.e., scrubbing, rubbing, pushing, bending, and all the rest of the things associated with abrasives, like Mr Eraser. It works BETTER, far better than acetone, which I had used for a long time before i was turned onto this stuff.
Unless you cover them, this is the easiest and best working liquid cleaning
method I have found in 35 years, including all the ideas expressed in the thread.
I don't bother waxing them again. They get dirty again. Why? Other docks and the edge of mine, 'cuz it belongs to the marina and I don't clean their stuff anymore than they clean mine.
I've resurrected two 20 year old ones to brand new look and keep all six of mine clean that way.
How long? Mindless work, but all of five minutes each for a 6 x 23.
