Anyone used 30 seconds?

Up here in the Pacific NW, we get a lot of green slime. Has anyone tried 30 seconds? They say you can use it on RV's, but is it "Escape safe"?

I've used it around the house, but I'd be concerned about the awning fabric being damaged.
I would certainly rinse very well. Interesting that they call it 30 Seconds and in their ads tell you to leave it sit for 15 minutes before rinsing. Why isn't it called 15 Minutes?
I would read the instructions carefully.

30 Seconds is a very expensive solution considering a dilution of bleach and Trisodium Phospate accomplish the same thing at a fraction of the cost. I use a mixture of these for much of my exterior home and yard surfaces, but wouldn't use either solution on Gelcoat without some professional advice. BTW I have tried 30 Seconds a couple of times and went back to the TSP/Bleach solution.

So with some mixed responses, aside from elbow grease, any suggestions of what to use to clean all that green slime off our Escape? Getting time to get Tomago ready!

I use Simonize Wash 'n' Wax and a bit of elbow grease. It's not that much work.
Have you got a son-in-law or potential son-in-law?

I have the Canadian Junior Men's Bronze Medalist curler from this year!
I'm sure he knows how to sweep. Now can he scrub?!?

Great sweeping... in one stripe, and someone has to stand around yelling at him when to sweep.

I like this mix as a cleaner too but you must be very careful mixing bleach with detergent. Its a great cleaner but also releases chlorine gas. NEVER use inside enclosed spaces and only use outside hopefully with a little breeze. Chlorine gas is a main ingredient for Mustard Gas which killed so many during WW!.

That said, I use it on my boat exterior and it will make it really shine. Wear gloves and old clothes.

Hi: Tworainy... I swear by LA'sAwesome Cleaner. Works wonders on the awning, and the black streaks under the windows. Best part is it's available at the dollar stores. Alf
