Marine Clean?

Juel............
I am about to start with all the other products....are you saying Marine Clean alone will do "the Yellow be gone" trick? I am looking for the easy way out.
thanks.

Yes, that's just what I'm saying. I used it on my 78 Argosy and it got rid of the yellow from grease and smoke and the sticky too. It also cleaned the gunk off the exterior paint. Balgrn told me about it and he was right. I tried all the things you are about to try. This Marine Clean is better. You do have to rinse it with a damp cloth after, but it works and does not have a horrible odor. Write Balgrn and ask him. He's camping this week end, but will be back next week.

Juel: The Marine Clean "from the POR people"? Could you tell me what that stands for and how/where to get it? Sounds like good stuff.

Mike- you have that may holes? I patched the screw holes in mine, maybe 6. I used the bondo product that comes pre-mixed in a tube, then when dry sanded it smooth. It worked well.

Once all clean.....

Follow up with a coat of FUTURE FLOOR WAX. This will prevent new sticky and seal up your beautiful new wall.

Thank you to all. We have a similar situation, not yellow just sticky. YUCK. We thought the stickyness was from cooking but still had doubt. We have'nt been able to do much cleaning yet but did try a small area with Sun and Earth dish soap that did nothing. Then tried a little Cinch Spray Cleaner just to see what would happen, nothing still. Suprisingly the best was Endust Cleaning Spray it took the stickyness away. We will be trying Simple Green it has worked wonders for us in the past and its gentle. If it does'nt work we will definately try the products listed. This is the first steps to bringing back Sammie. The next steps are interior reupholstering. $$$$$.

We will let you know how the Simple Green works out.

Yellow icky goo

Luckily, our PO's were not smokers so our Safari is in pretty clean shape, but I once moved into a rent house that was previously occupied by some professional smokers. You could tell this as the walls were Antique White till I removed a Metallica poster to review the walls were actually bright white.
I found that TSP, Tri-sodium Phosphate (available at paint stores) did a wonderful job in removing the guck. Don't know how this product will react to the interior, so test it in an inconspicuous place. The only problem we had though was if you took a shower, the walls would bleed yellow tar as sheetrock is porous and the tar ran deep. The only thing we didn't hear was "GET OUT" from the Amityville Horror house.
After many subsequent cleanings we finally got the mess stopped. At least an Airstream is not a porous as a home wall.

Didn't see old fashioned bakeing soda and hydrogen peroxcide, both are bleaching agents, together they foam away most anything use a bristle brush in a circle motion then rinse w/ water. I did not have this sticky yellow problem in my Airstream, but did in a lake house vent-a-hood, grease smoke bugs you name it. Carefull not to get in eyes , wear rubber gloves and mask anytime .
