    Hello

    I have a Aluminium Row Boats and an Aluminum Pontoon Boat I would like to clean up and make look bright again. Marine stores want a fortune for a quart of Acid Cleaner.

    WHAT CAN I USED AND WHERE DO I BUY IT.

    This is for a soft wash since I only have a Homeowner type machine.

    Thanks for any and all help.

    Ric - anything marine related has a huge mark up on it. Try commercially available aluminium brightner. Softwash should be find like in this video I found.

    Let us know how it turns out?

    I use to use a product called Alumabright. Got it from a local hardware. I believe i mixed it 50/50 with water. It worked great on bare aluminum.

    I tried something just like Alumabright today and it worked great.

    Thanks to all for your replies.
