But think how well the lawn has been fertilized!

I haven't used the Borax on the trailer, but do use it to keep the ants down from around the house foundation... multiple uses for the same item. I love it!

Donna, yet ANOTHER use for the miracle Borax. My parents used it on their Christmas trees as a fire retardent. (We have an artificial tree.) My mother used to spray a mixture all over the tree and let it dry before bringing it into the house. Then after it had been up for while, she would break off a small twig in the back and try to light it with a lighter or match. When it stopped putting the match out, she knew it was time to take the tree down. I don't know what the mixture was except that it used Borax. They applied it with the sprayer from their Electrolux vacuum cleaner.

Come to think of it, I think it was a mixture of Borax and Boric Acid...

Here are some more uses:

Although another website says do not use with acid like this site says in No. 2. (Lemon juice is acidic)

I guess just try a little. The only thing I know not to mix is ammonia and bleach - it will generate chlorine gas.

Kevin, where do we buy the Poli-glow? We live in Southern California and have a sweet little 13' Scamp that really needs a face lift. Thanks Gerry

Hi. I live in Orange County too and purchased my Poli-glow online from Defender Industries. Poli-glow is pretty expensive but it appears they have the lowest price online. I can't recall how much the shipping was, however. Here's their website: http://www.defender.com/product.jsp?path=-...1&id=197398
You can also just Google "poli-glow" and you'll get the price comparisons. Good luck.

I agree with Kevin; the kit was great with the cleaner and applicator (which I fit onto a 3 foot broomstick for easy use on the top.) I really like how the PoliGlo worked. (Though bugs still get stuck on it!)

I would suggest reading the comments on this thread before going through with a poli glow application: http://www.fiberglassrv.com/board/index.ph...st&p=293854

Just make sure it is what you want to do to your exterior - I have seen what happens to it after a few years and it is difficult to remove... just an FYI...

Practical Sailor reviewed eight different fiberglass restorers in 1998, including Vertglas. The link to this (on the Poli Glow website) is here. Of these, for the do-it-yourselfer, Poli Glow got the highest marks for initial shine. Has anyone tried it?

Vi and John own a 70's Trillium. They were at Bandon, Ore last July. I commented to them on how shinny their trailer was. They told me about Poly-Glow. I plan to do both of my Bigfoot trailers this winter.

Supposedly the cleaner will also remove Poliglo. I haven't tried it.

From various sources I have read Acetone will remove it - however, Acetone is pretty nasty stuff.

Actually I've found acetone to be really easy to work with in a vented space. Only problem is it's extremely volatile so you go through a can fairly quick. But it sure takes out a variety of stains and leaves no residue.

On fiberglass boats with stains in the gel coat, Oxyalic acid will take out rust and tanic stains. Oxyalic acid is a white powder to mix with water, available at many hardware stores. The fiberglass must be cleaned of oils, grease, and waxes before the acid wash. This is a mild acid and we have no trouble with skin contact (but will sting cuts). It will also take rust stains out of clothing. --Dan--
