Whether it’s rust, fish stains, grime, or sticky grease, boats can get very dirty after just a few uses. It is important to clean a boat well and properly. Proper boat cleaning can increase the longevity of a boat, makes it more attractive, and even protects it from the natural elements. Here are some suggestions for boat cleaners that can restore a boat to like-new condition:
Starbrite Instant Hull Cleaner
Starbrite is good for metal, fiberglass, and painted surfaces. It is non-abrasive and biodegradable, making it suitable for cleaning while the boat is still in the water. It also works well as a preparation for hull polishing.
Simple Green Marine All-Purpose Boat Cleaner
Simple Green is ideal for grease and oil messes. It is non-abrasive, and since it is biodegradable, it is safe for use near the water.
Collinite No. 920 Fiberglass Boat Cleaner
