Y10 is very effective at removing the yellow stains of gelcoat or rust streaks etc

Or you could be a cheapskate like me and make up some Oxalic acid gel.

Mix with wallpaper paste to the required consistency.

I thought that you'd need a nuclear tactical battlefield weapon to get rid of Staines?

It's quite the blot...

Mix it up thick with WPP powder, apply with a brush or roller - it clings to your work and washes off with a hose. It doesn't store well - I guess the acid works on the paste too. I use it quite a lot, on gel coat, flow coat and tiles. It works a treat. You can use it on stainless steel too.

All the usual precautions apply as regards personal protection. You might want to keep it away from galvanised steel (hint: trailer) - it comes up very clean but much thinner!!

Start with 10% Acid to 90% water/paste
