Cleaning fiberglass interior?

We just picked up our Burro this weekend, and it needs a good cleaning inside and out. I was thinking about trying Gel-Gloss on it. Has anyone tried that product, or have another product they would recommend? It does have some spider cracking on the inside that I would love to minimize - are there any products that help to minimize the appearance of those cracks? Thanks!

This is the stuff I was referring to:

For the usual cleanup, of dirt, spatter, insect spotting, I think Windex or maybe 409 work well. When we got our Burro, I felt a bit more was demanded in certain areas involving various sorts of stickum. Used GooBegone and Bestine. Good ventilation required when using either or both. I like Turtlewax "Icewax" car polish but almost any spray furniture wax (Pledge) produces a barrier layer that makes it easier to clean the next time. I don't have spider cracks in the interior liner so no experience trying to hide them.

What would you use to clean the inside of fiberglass products of a "sticks 'n bricks house"? Just becuase your asset is now on wheels.... nothing has changed. Truly....


I'm thinking shower stalls, etc....

BTW: I'm a gel gloss friend inside and out (trailer and home shower stall).

Lol! I guess you're right, Donna. We don't have any fiberglass in our current house that I can think of, but I had a can of Gel-Gloss left over from prior to our move (when we did have a fiberglass shower). I tried it out on the walls of the Burro a bit today, and it seemed to work pretty well. There were some black scuffing type marks that, for the most part, it took care of.

I used just soap and water on the inside. On the outside, softscrub and a green scrubby pad.

Mary a Magic Eraser will take off most scuffs.
