The best cleaning products you’ve never heard of

Every week seems to bring the next “miracle cleaner,” complete with flashy packaging and a catchy name. Instead of catching the next fad, Sporty’s is proud to have partnered with Arrow-Magnolia for over 30 years to offer the finest cleaning products for your airplane. These chemicals are used by some of the world’s largest airlines and corporate flight departments, and most even meet Boeing and military specs. We have used these products for years on everything from rentals to Hal's personal Aztec and feel confident you will be impressed with their performance. You will not find a thirty-minute infomercial on TV about any of these products. They were not made to sit on a shelf and look pretty. They clean. Period.

Requires a lot of elbow grease on what I consider typical oil residue from breather pipes, etc.

Excellent product, very impressed
I used this in a ratio of about 6 to 1 to get embedded blowback oil and carbon stains out of the tail of my gyroplane. I had already tried removing it with Dawn detergent and that did not work. It was amazing how just spraying this mixture from a hand spray bottle caused the stain to literally just melt out of the fiberglass paint. I barely had to rub it with a sponge at all. I would highly recommend it.

Lot of work
I was surprised at how much elbow grease was required to revove the exhaust soot stains from the bottom of my Cirrus for a product designed to do just that.My heavy duty super green had about the same results.

Did not take gas stain off boat
I bought the product because they said it would remove gas stains. I tried various strengths and it did not take the yellow stain out.

cuts exhaust off easily
Had a lot of exhaust build up on the belly. I used some 100LL from several recommendations and it did loosen it up but didn't really clean it. I got a gallon of this and it eliminated the exhaust immediately. I love it!

Will it remove the wax on the surface?
A shopper on Jul 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Not that I can tell. I use a 1:10 mixture for exhaust trail and it does not appear to remove or affect my wax, which is "Mothers 5701 California Gold Carnuba Wax" --Ray
