Black/white streaks Remover

Hey
I have had problems with the streaks for a while now, ive tried all sorts of products and none really work to remove them.

Got it now!!! highly recommended, just give a casual spray and wash your motorhome as normal, no scrubbing. For heavily soiled areas try spraying direct then simply wipe with a cloth and finally wash as normal.

The product is called Formula 1 degreaser, got mine from a boat chandlery but im sure if you google it you will find it.

good luck!

Bad idea. Cif is abrasive.

Agree not to use cif - your van will lose it's paint where you rub, it works by scraping off the outer layer, which may be OK on a hard surface but if you do it on the thin layer of cellulose paint it will take it off (similar to T Cut in action).

Avoid abrasives.

Hi all,

I use a similar product by Image Chemicals known as - Traffic 110 & Wax, and I dilute it into a garden spray bottle, wet the MH, a quick spray and brush over, and rinse off immediately. It removes anything including all the dead flies and blood stains on the GRP front. It does have a high PH value, so I do use it well diluted and sparingly.
They also do a product called EnviroKleen, which is used by the local caravan/MH trade, and has a very low PH value......apparently. Having not used it.........yet, I can't comment on it's performance.
They both work out at about 12 - 15 for 5 litres, which lasts me a couple of years at least. Also great for removing the break dust on alloy wheels, but must be rinsed immediately (Traffic 110 that is), before it dries.

Supplier in the North Lincs/South Cambs area

Jock.

Meguiars Quik Detailer does it for me, really easy to use and restores the shine. They recommend it for between washes.

Most hard surface cleaners , traffic film removers will do the job

On sunday i filled screenwash bottles up on cars and van, I dipped a rag in what was left in the jug and it just wiped away the black streaks on mh.

Fenwicks "Motorhome Cleaner" diluted 10 parts water to one part cleaner,

Spray on - leave a couple of minutes - light rub with sponge or brush and rinse off.

It works and is cheaper than "proper" black streak removers - which in my opinion are way overpriced.

Cheers
