Bar Keepers Friend

Anyone use this on your fiberglass? If so, were you glad or sad?

It's one of the major cleaning items used before applying Red Max Pro... or ZEP as it's now called.

Although I wouldn't think your 2011 Egg Camper would need anything nearly this aggressive.

Are you asking for yourself and your trailer? If so, we can point you to more appropriate solutions.

You can also just add a little in your bucket of wash water.

Our EggCamper is gross. We had it in the yard with a lot of snow, had it down to Georgia, to Texas & Florida and both those trips it got a HUGE dose of road slop. Only lost the rest of the snow in our yard and we've had about "7" years worth of rain in the last couple of days and it's supposed to keep doing that for almost another week. Not sure I'd recognize the sun if it ever does come out.

Bar Keepers Friend works very well to remove rust stains from fiberglass.

Bar Keepers Friend best claim to fame when used on all molded trailers is it is slightly abrasive and removes chalk on the gelcoat.

If you're looking to remove all the gross nasties, but still have a good gelcoat underneath. I'd suggest buying 30 second Outdoor Cleaner (available at Lowes, etc). Put it in a pump spray container (like you use to kill weeds), spray the entire trailer. Let sit for a few minutes then hose it off. Wash with a good car wash soap, dry... the use Mequires Flagship Wax.

Donna,

Would that 30 second outdoor cleaner work on the fiberglass tub/shower in the house? I hate cleaning the tub.

Wish we had a Lowes, sounds like a good product. Storing our Scamp we have never had much problem. After one of our long trips we have had some bugs, tar and dirt. Elbow grease usually takes care.

Thanks for mentioning 30 second product.

Nancy

Should be able to get it at any grocery store, look around the cleansers like comet et. al.

You could use it in a fiberglass shower, I suppose.. with proper ventilation! There may be a reason it's called "outdoor." If you do, let us know how it goes.

I have friends that use it on their driveway. Easier on the concrete than a pressure washer. I can find 30 Second Outdoor Cleaner lots of places in Portland. I KNOW the big box stores carry it.

Is it really that good? I may have to give it a try...Has anybody used it on a Redmaxed trailer? Probably not a good idea.

Aaron, I think it would take the Red Max off (not totally), or at least cause it to spot.

A former member used it on his awning... the underside that faces the patio and it came out stellar clean. Just another FYI

That is its intended use; siding, patios etc. to get ride of mould and mildew, green slime.
Rinse thoroughly. I mean that.
