    Restoring Pool Slide

    My fiberglass pool slide is oxidized (white haze) and was wondering what would be best to clean and bring it back to original.

    I tried the magic eraser and it does remove the white haze. I have read online about car rubbing compound and then use car wax.

    Any suggestions?

    yup, too complex. my slide does not need that much work. There are no cracks and paint is fine except for the white haze that rubs off.

    I would try a good marine fiberglass wax/restorer. I use it on the RV and it does a good job. I can't remember the brand right now.
