How do you wash white sunscreen blemishes off of black hypalon tubes?

Self explanatory title.

Seriously? No ideas?

On a black boat, white sunscreen stains that rub off of people are pretty unsightly, I can't be the only one with this problem... Somebody out there must have some ideas...

Try a touch of WD40 gently rub with a scotchbrite, worked on my Hypalon, at your own risk of course

Had the same 'Problem' with all the Kids aboard lately...not really an issue though,I wash the RIB off with Car Shampoo, and power washer after use.. then a little 'Armourall' will sort it,and most other stuff too!

If it is sunscreen, any detergent should do, but apply protectorant after. Are you sure that its not sun blotches? Allowing water droplets to sun dry can cause this on dark tubes.

I get the same on dark blue tubes. It leaves a sort of smear that won't wash off(guess it's designed not to come off easily?) . The 3m protector stuff seems to sort it.
