Removing Oil Stain on Non Skid Deck


Ron asked:

How would you suggest removing an oil stain that set in from an oil can sitting on non-skid for too long... already tried bleach, and non skid cleaner...


Your best bet is to try a 50/50 solution of Boat Clean Plus and Boat Scrub. That’s what boat manufacturers use to remove yellowing, streaking, rust marks etc. If this does not work, then the stain has been on too long and is indelible and can not be removed with cleaners. Also, using the wrong cleaner, like bleach, can set the stain, making it impossible to remove.

When you get the stain out, be sure to seal the non-skid decks with Sure Step. It will prevent this from happening in the future. I recommend that you seal all non-skid deck surfaces as soon as possible after you buy your boat with Sure Step to prevent stains from happening.

Thanks for your question,
Captain Aurora
