What You'll Need
Cleaning Eraser
Spray Cleaner
Hose
Tile or Grout Cleaner
Medium Firm Brush

Boat trailer fenders area a hard area to keep clean. They can look great, but one step and the those pesky black shoe marks appear in no time. Here are a few tricks to keeping the fenders clean.

Step 1 - Cleaning Eraser

Cleaning erasers really are magic, as they can remove most any surface level marking. Get the eraser wet and scrub at any stubborn marks. Use a circular pattern to scrub. If marks still refuse to come off, try Step 2.

Step 2 - Household Spray Cleaner

Spray household cleaner directly on stubborn stains, and allow to sit for 2 minutes. Apply a second spray or 2, and scrub with a sponge. Rinse clean with a hose. If still an issue, try Step 3.

Step 3 - Tile or Grout Cleaner

Apply tile or grout cleaner liberally, and allow to sit for 2 minutes. Do not allow the cleaner to dry, or the problem will be magnified. Scrub with a medium firm brush, using a circular pattern and firm pressure. Rinse clean with a hose. 

Step 4 - Wax

A coating of wax will make future cleanings much simpler. Be sure to use marine wax, not auto wax, for the best results.
