the matson floor grip on my new boat is starting to accumulate blood and misc oil/grime stains from the past couple months of use. I haven’t been able to get it looking new again with boat cleaners or other chemicals.

is it a lost cause trying to clean this or does someone know of a chemical/soap that will get the job done? Not a big deal but would like to keep It clean without having to use a pressure washer or scrubbing and remove the paint.

    There you go using common sense. Guess I could've thought of that on my own.

    Called them and they said use Rustoleum Tough Task Crud Kutter.

    Let me know how that works
    Every time I have my boat serviced they stain mine with wd-40 or solvents or something oil based. The Matson is permeable and soaks up the stain. I have repainted mine twice now.

    Krud Kutter works. Use a bristle brush to foam it up then let sit for at least 15 mins then hose off. Doesn’t get it back to brand new but might if you keep at it. Good to go.
