Just curious what everyone uses to get and keep their fiberglass clean and shiny?

I use the $4 turtle wax spray and wipe clean. Works good. I get home and then spray it when I have time instead of wiping it down at the ramp.

Duckys is amazing to keep water spots off, Especially on a black motor where every spot shows up. Got it off Amazon.

Should add that I use Eagle One Marine Wax As-U-Dry after the Ducky's. Find it at Walmart

I use mist and shine during the year to just clean it up and shiny, and usually use 3m boat wax 2 times a year it has a mild rubbing compound works great on the buffer.

50/50 mix of white cleaning vinegar and water works well for an inexpensive quick wipe down.
Keep it in a spray bottle with a soft cloth....spray on - wipe off....

I too am a fan of home brew cleaning products, They work just as good as any store bought stuff that I have tried. I have not tried the cornstarch yet though.

The Ducky stuff worked pretty good, but I had better luck with the cheap Shoreline Marine Hull Cleaner from Walmart.
