Cleaning with SnoBowl

Ok, so I have seen a lot about using SnoBowl to clean the hull. What would be the proper mix for this. I'm scared to use too much. thanks

Use it full strength. No need to dilute it.

I'd be curious to know why a bathroom toilet bowl cleaner would be any better at cleaning fiberglass stains than any other preparation of muriatic, phosphoric, or oxalic acid that's MADE to safely clean gelcoat instead of porcelain, such as Zing.

Probably, it's cheaper than Babe's ... even so, I don't think one would be using enough of the stuff to make the cost difference that big a deal.

What kind of water requires SnoBowl to clean the hull? Just throw in a Clorox Toilet Bowl Cleaner tablet in the lake or river every so often and start double flushing.

I use it at 50 - 50, then spray it on, let soak for a few minutes, scrub with SOFT bristle brush, rinse. WEAR PROTECTIVE GLOVES AND EYE PROTECTION!!!!! THIS STUFF STINGS!

admittedly taking the easy route, I use bathroom cleaner for gelcoat stain(scum)
cheap and easy (X14 or tilex)
spray it on and don't mess around wiping it in or rinsing it off as it will streak.
dry her, wax her and you are done.

Use it full strength in a tank sprayer (lawn weed killer tank sprayer)...easy on easy off....make sure you get the liquid, not the gel.
