Default How to clean my ISonic

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.
:-)

Cheers

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.
