Cleaning Marks off Non-Skid Surfaces

Hello -

I was wondering if someone can recommend a product for cleaning marks off white non-skid surfaces.

I have tried Boat Zoap - and a medium bristle brush without great results.

Thanks in advance

Soft Scrub With Bleach. Sometimes we mix boat zoap with a little bleach for the same effect. Be careful with bleach-based products, especially around canvas. And use this for the skid only, not painted surfaces...

24oz Soft Scrub with bleach by Dial Corp - 01602 - More Abraisive and Non Abraisive Cleaners at doitbest.com

Try a stiffer brush too, especially if it's a grit non-skid.

Try OOPS. great for breaking down sticky stuff. Try it in a safe place first.

To break down sap from trees, try rubbing alcohol with a rag. It will melt the sap away. Then clean normally.

For sap and other sticky goo try this for a non-toxic alternative. Smells good too!
