Hello

I do have an Hypersonic that turned yellow. I would like to know what kind of product I can use to clean it, if any.

Thanks

Daniel,

it is a common problem. The paint turns yellow with time. I solved this on my Sonic cleaning it with... ash. Well, it was just a try, but it turned out nicely. I used a wet old dish sponge, on its soft side, and ash from the wood stove. I guess ash acts as a mild abrasive; it takes some work to clean, but one does not risk to damage the board.

Probably there are more professional methods also, but this worked anyhow and I will use it again if needed. Plus, it is perfectly ambientally safe.

Would SoftScrub work? I've never tried, but am thinking about it.

I use a stiff-bristled brush to clean the deck (to get dirt and sea grass out of the abrasive surface).

Apply a solution of Oxalic Acid (fastest) or Citric Acid, wait a minute and wash off with water.
Works on boards, boats ….., some say cheap orange juice works too.

Fresh lime juice is all that you need, I'm not joking, it really works. B)

It sounds silly, but works like a charm: Apple Sauce. Aplly, leave it there for about 10 minutes, remove and your iSonic will be white again.
