    Cleaing soild dish?

    I was needing to clean a fiberclass bud and ku dish. I was wanting to make sure I didn't try to clean them with anything that would harm the surface. I was thinking of soap(dish washing liquid) and water. Any advice on the do's don'ts of cleaning a dish would be appericated.

    I think you thinked ok, soap 'n water, and a scrub brush...

    Do not paint over dish!!! Use a car wax, buff it, then remove all wax; and shine...

    Oils can harm fiberous material, probably do not use gas or oil based cleaners. Sunlight harms plastics, so the wax and shine should help.

    I used Bleach and Hot Water

    I got a free 8 foot Channel Master that was very dirty and stained. I used Hot Water with some Bleach and it came out almost completely white.

    The dish is fiberglass and it did not hurt the dish at all.
    There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness"

    I didn't think of bleach. I may do that.

    I used a scrub pad with a slid out handle to clean my 8 foot solid dish and cleaner in bucket of water. My dish had years of pecan tree sap built up.
    Look like a new dish! I will paint the Button Hook and all metal with cans of black spray paint and replace all bolts and nut with new ones. I have been using my dish since 1986!
