Like a dumb arse yesterday, I knocked over a full bottle of chartreuse spike-it in my boat. It got on the white gel coat and carpet. Is there a magic way of getting this stuff off, or just time and lots of sun?

I know I'm gonna sound crazy but I bet acetone will take if off of the gel coat. Just be sure to rinse it off afterwards and you'll be fine. As for the carpet, try scrubbing it with a brush and a mixture of vinegar and water. That should do the trick.

Spray-on sunscreeen will help on the gel coat. soap and water on the carpet and a little bit of time.

Or, you could call the manufacturer and find out what they recommend.

It will come off of the gel coat in a good day in the sun.

Spike-It makes a neutralizer to remove it. It will be in the same section as the dye.
