Cleaning interior white walls of Scamp

Hello! Iím hoping someone can advise me on how to clean up the white walls from the previous owner that were scuffed up with various colored marks. Iím not sure what this material is called? I donít think itís fiberglass? This is a 2001 Scamp and it is not the elephant skin type material rather the smoother white walls that you see in 16 Scamps with bathrooms.
Thank you!
Roz

Roz, have you tried magic eraser/scuff eraaser? Not familiar with the material on your walls. It might help to post a picture of your walls.

In 2001 Scamp was putting "rat fur" or officially know as marine head liner on the walls and ceiling of all Scamps. It sounds like you bought one that somebody modified the wall covering to who knows what? With out knowing it's only a guess that a particular chemical will do the job with out doing damage. Make you test is hidden area.

Thanks for the cleaning tips! Will try those. The material is original, but more specifically, it’s the shiny white surface the counters and bench seats are made of, ie same material as bathroom walls on shower head side.

smooth white hard plastic, I'd clean with a damp cloth and a bit of most any nonabrasive spray cleaner, like formula 409, or simple green. follow up with a clean damp cloth to remove any cleaner residue.

I just learned something new. The kitchen counter, bench seats, and all other interior fiberglass stuff are the trailer walls.

Well, probably not...

But I am a little confused about what walls you're talking about. Inside the shower enclosure? Backsplash behind the galley? Sides of cabinets?

Cabinets and benches are fiberglass gelcoat. I'm not sure what they use for shower liner and kitchen backsplash.

It would also help to know what you're trying to remove- hard water spots, grease, shoe scuff marks...

Cleaning interior fiberglass walls

I used Soft Scrub (with bleach, I think) to remove scuff marks, etc. from the interior fiberglass.

"Black Magic" Spray White Wall Cleaner.

Get it at any Wal Mart, Dollar General (Cheapest) and your favorite auto parts store (Expensive).

Use it all the time to remove grime from under the hood of cars/trucks, door jambs and the exterior of fiberglass trailers to start the clean process.

Spray it on, DO NOT LET IT DRY, scrub while wet IF you need and wash/wipe it off.

Best thing I have found getting old "Grime" off of many surfaces.

Used a bottle of it today on an old truck I bought yesterday.

Great results as always.It also works great on tires!!
