Cratch & Rear Cover Cleaner?


Nb Smudger

Featured Posts

Hi all, hope everyone is well. Having a bit of a problem trying to get cratch & rear covers clean. Previous nb we had, had the shiny pvc which cleaned up a treat with Pledge polish. Smudger has the cloth like material covers and we have tried scrubbing (using a green scourer) with mild washing up liquid and rinsing off. But with ALL the rain last Winter, we cannot get rid of the horrible green damp stains. Do we need something a little stonger maybe? Someone suggested Cillit Bang but this has bleach in it. Not sure of using bleach on the cloth material?

Any ideas please would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks everyone.

Smudger.

At one time I was a marine valet working on very large floating Gin Palaces which often had huge areas of canopy. We used a stuff which is available called "Boatwash in a Bottle" made by Starbrite.

The method we used was mix fluid with water and use it in a garden hand sprayer. Hose down canopy with clean water,spray solution on and wait a few minutes. Scrub with long handle boat scrub brush till you get plenty of foam then hose off. The amount of filth and green slime that comes pouring off. Repeat if needed. The sort of boats we cleaned were upto a 1/4 million jobbies and the owners expected them to look like new.(Which they did) Some of them had them cleaned once a month which cost them serious money, more often if they had been out on the lumpy stuff, NC will tell you about salt coating everything.
