Aluminum Cleaner FAQ
Q: How do I apply Aluminum Cleaner?
A: We recommend (but not necessary) using a pressure washer or garden hose with spray nozzle first to remove the big stuff. Clean just after removing boat from water or before build up dries. This will also save you cleaner cost, as you won’t need as much. You must let surface dry completely. Now you’re ready to apply Aluminum Cleaner.
A: Apply using supplied trigger sprayer (on 64oz bottles) Adjust nozzle down to a fine mist or Use a Plastic 1-2 gallon home & garden sprayer for easier application, but also adjust nozzle to a fine mist. Start at bottom and work your way up applying evenly as you go. If streaking occurs, reapply in that area. Let stand for up to 5 minutes and rinse.
Q: Do I dilute Toon-brite?
A: Yes &No, ½ Gallons & Gallons are ready to go for heavy cleaning, (meaning boats that are left in water) for light cleaning dilute 50/50 or more.
Q: Will Aluminum Cleaner put a “shine” back on my old stained aluminum?
A: No, As a matter of fact, no acid based aluminum cleaner, no matter what brand, will put a “shine” back on old aluminum.
Q: What kind of finish will Aluminum Cleaner leave?
A:That depends on how strong you mix it. When mixed at a weaker ratio, about 3-5 to 1 it will remove slight stains and oxidation leaving a fairly shiny finish assuming that the original mill finish still exists. But when mixed at a strong ratio, about 1 to 1, Aluminum Cleaner will bleach aluminum to a uniform off white finish.
(IF you see a real chalky look, it’s telling you that you are using to strong)

A: You can use Toon-brite Metal Polish & Restorer and bring your aluminum to a Show-room look
Or apply Clear-coat for real nice luster finish.
