    cleaning top rails

    what is the best thing to clean the top rails with? my top rails are a composite material i guess. they are getting a little bit of black stuff in the cracks. i tried letting 409 sit on there and the wiping it off but that didnt really work. could i put beach on there or would it discolor it too bad? what have yall found that works best?

    409 is some strong stuff. I cant reccomend bleach I would be too afraid of the composite bleaching.
    Have you tried a powerwasher?

    i didnt try a pressure washer but i did try to use a magic eraser and it works but you can only clean about 1-1.5 sections with one pad before the magic eraser is gone. the textured part of the rails wears the magic eraser pad out fast. i think i will try 409 next. hopefully i will find something that will clean them soon, i am running out of options.
