Best product to clean black streaks?

What do you use that makes quick work of black runoff streaks?
I tried typical car wash soap, no luck.
Turtle wax bug & tar remover. Helped a little, but not 100%.

Apply Mop & Glo to the roof once or twice a year with a household sponge mop and eliminate black streaks.

"Totally awesome" cleaner is the best for black streaks.
Get it for $1 at the dollar store.

I've never used it but a family member recently told me he uses Camco Black Streak Remover and he said it works great.

Also, washing the roof often will help but not totally eliminate black streaks...

I've been very happy with Simple Green in a spray bottle. It's non-toxic and biodegradable.

x2 for La's Totally Awesome. I use it all the time and it absolutely destroys the black streaks. No rubbing..nothing. Just wipes off. Super cheap and works fantastic. Amazon sells it as well.

Thanks TWP723! LA's Totally Awesome is $2 cheaper at amazon than Simple Green... I may have to give it a try when it's time for more.

No problem! Just be sure to wax the area after!

I've tried a lot of products including all the ones listed above. I've found that nothing works without a liberal application of elbow grease.

Well except perhaps a flamethrower- that's pretty effective on black streaks but you can't use the RV afterwards.
