Bird Dropping Stain removal

I found a large bird (or pterodactyl judging by the dropping size) dropping on my Scamp, after scrubbing and scrubbing with various products i.e. black stain remover, Zep, boat/RV wash, etc I still have a stain in the fiberglass. Any recommendations on other methods/products to use. Thanks

Have you tried using 3M Restore & Wax - never had a bird stain it wouldnt take off using a micro cloth.

If you haven't tried it yet, Barkeeper's Friend can do wonders.

Which type? The liquid or the powder would you recommend?

Thanks

I have used Barkeepers powder... careful, it's abrasive which was fine for my application. Have you tried soaking a sponge or paper towel with plain ole chorine bleach and let it sit on the stain for a while? Might work...

I use the powder, and heed Donna's advice - don't scrub raw powder too hard or you will scratch the surface. It contains oxalic acid as its active ingredient, which works like a bleach.

Hi: Jon Vermilye... I second the Bar Keepers Friend... but use it with plenty of water. Our next neighbour at Niagara Wine Escape last year had a fly past dropping after the "Goose" had visited the vinyard. The "Colour Purple" is nice but just not down the front of a 5.0. Bar Keepers Friend and copious amts. of water did the trick where others failed.
Label says Cleanser & Polish for S/S, Fiberglass, Porcelain, Glass Cooktops, Copper, Tile, Brass. http://www.barkeepersfriend.com Read the surface guide.
Available where most cleaning supplies are sold. I don't work for them but it works for ME!!!
