I remember that one. The before picture was not as varyingly yellow as it appears, it was a trick of the sun and the camera (I think). The trailer was always a steady cream colour, just very dull. The cleaning helped and the polishing made it look ... well ... polished. The colour of the driveway bricks is much more accurate in the after picture.

Seems we all need sunglasses. Looks Great. I am impressed with the idea of Red Max. I just bought Gel Gloss...hard work...Red Max seems easier.

trailer envy

Hi Rick
Your trailer looks amazing.
We have the same Trillium and desperately want it to look like as good as your's . (watching this topic for a loooong time)

See that you are located in Alberta and have used Bar Keepers Friend as the cleaner. Called Home Depot here in Halifax and "No they don't have BKF and have never carried it" In fact, no one seems to carry it here.

So my BIG question is....where did you (in Canada ) buy your BKF??

We can get Rex Max but really need a good cleaner first....and one that is not very toxic as I am very sensitive. (elbow grease ok but second choice)

Thanks for any help/advice
Donna

Bar Keeper's Friend is just a mild abrasive with oxalic acid in it to dissolve rust. I'm sure there is an equivalent product sold near you for maintaining sinks.

Try a Home Hardware store. My local one carries both the powder and the liquid forms. (of course I discovered this only after looking high and low, and finally bought some on a trip to the US. Doh!)

great idea

Thank you very much Will

We have very few Home Hardware Stores in this area (Halifax) but I did call one some distance away and YES....they do carry BKF!!!!

Because they (HH) are so inconvenient to get to, I rarely think of them.
I will more so in the future!

Happy Donna

Sparky1 ZEP Wet look floor finish is the same product as RedMax Pro #3. Home Depot in Lynchburg VA shows 5, 1 gallon bottles in stock, Lowes in Madison Heights, VA shows the 1 gallon bottle in stock as well.
Good luck!

Sparky1,
Both Lowes and Home Depot have "buy online for store pickup". Before I drove that far, I would make sure they have it by buying it before leaving the house. Did you check Jamerson Building Supply? They are a Do It Best affiliate and may either carry it or be able to get it.

Was you looking for the REDMAX or the ZEP...I know Lowes discontiued carrying the REDMAX and started carrying the ZEP, I think mainly because they were the same product made at the same company with the same ingredients....I saw a whole line of the ZEP products today at my local Lowes store and I'm alot closer than Califorina and they had it by the gallon....Hopefully this helps if not send me a PM and I'll if I can help you farther.......

Smile Red Max/Zep

Our Lowe's only had the 5 gallon Red Max in the clearance section. They did have the Zep; a regular finish for $16 and a "Wet Look" for $24.

Looking about, I ran into what appears to be the same thing at Wal-Mart on clearance, called Armstrong floor finish if I recall. There seem to be several different brands touting the same thing. Are they similar or is Red Max/Zep the only good one?
Chemists? anyone?

Has anyone been bold enough to use on their car?

Just checking our local Lowe's - they only have the "High Traffic" and the "Wet Look" in the Zep. There is some Red Max but only in 5 Gallon buckets.

Thanks for this very timely information. Today I lay eyes on my new [to me] 1300 Trillium. It will likely need some cleaning and a good finishing before I start the summer season. There are Lowes stores here in Ontario [Canada] and I will try to get a gallon of that Red Max on the way home to Newfoundland.
Does anyone know if the "Bartender's Friend" is available in Canada?
Thanks. D.
P.S. Had to get off the road and take a hotel in Riviere du Loup last Saturday night due to blizzard conditions. Only in Canada eh!

Getting Ready

My Scamp is on the road to me being delivered. I wanted a shiny trailer when I got it, so dropped by Lowes this morning. They had plenty in stock of all of it.

Yes, I got BarKeeper's Friend at the Home Hardware store, which is the only retailer I have seen it at in Alberta. They had both liquid and powder versions. Liquid worked well for me, but others on this thread feel that powder is better.
