Another favorite product of mine for cleaning glossy fiberglas shower walls is "Clean Shower". Actually it is not as much a cleaner as it is a maintainer. You spray the shower walls after each use and they will never become dull and covered with soap scum. The chrome will always shine like brand new. The shower will sparkle forever and look like it is factory new.

If you have an already dull and grimy shower, and gray water and soap scum covered chrome, just use it for about a month and wipe it down every few days with a wet, rough cloth. It soon will look like new again, but to break down the old film, takes a bit of time. Once it is looking good, just use it after every shower and you will never have to touch it again.

Works the same in your house on virtually all shower surface materials.

Try it and keep using it, you will find it is a fantastic product. Available at virtually every supermarket in the country for about $2.75

We have had a few minor stains on the mouse fur near one bedroom window on our Classic from a minor leak at the window frame. We used oxyclean on it and it did the trick.

As for a general all-purpose cleaner, I share the views of others in saying that "Awesome" from the dollar store is a great product - no idea of course how environmentally friendly it might be, given the source!

I first heard about it on the "Vintage Airstream Podcast" when someone asked what clear the guys used when setting out t restore an older trailer - that one was recommended by a member of the panel. Maybe Colin Hyde? I don't recall.

But I now use it all the time around the house / garage. And the price is right!

Thumbs up ...FYI.... Simple Green.

Be safe and use the right stuff, the SG we are all familiar with did fail the mil spec rating for use on bare aluminum panels.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?
