Can you all please recommend a soap or formula for cleaning the Wave hull? I know many, if not all, traditional hull cleaners (for fiberglas hulls) can cause harm to plastic.

My hull is not all that dirty, but is starting to accumulate some dirt that does not come off when sprayed with the hose. Thus, I need to get something to clean it.

I wonder if regular household liquid palmolive mixed with water would be fine?

Any suggestions?

I hop in the water, and give a rub-down with a Mr. Clean magic eraser, does a great job.

Plain old boat and car wash should work fine, too. Plus the boat-wash doesn't do any harm when it goes down your driveway into the drain (go go biodegradeable).

I'd like to add, if you need to remove some stuborn stains, Mat Miller suggested using Soft Scrub Cleanser somewhere in another thread.

Bonami cleanser can be purchased at any shopping center and it works fine. Matt is correct!

The Lysol bleach spray works great! We use it on the boats to get our greasy prints off after assembly.

Tire cleaner at the carwash works good too.
