Recreational boating is a surefire way to improve your quality of life and leave your troubles behind. But some people buy a boat and then wonder, months later, how to clean a boat.
Many people hitch their boat to their vehicle, head out for a day on the water and then return home, parking the boat outside. They maintain it well enough during boating season, but let it languish during the off-season.
And that creates all kinds of problems!
Dampness and shade create the perfect scenario for mold, mildew and algae to grow on your boat’s hull, interior and fabrics. The result is an ugly, grimy mess that looks terrible on the water.
This boating season, get ready for the water and give your boat a deep clean! It doesn’t take a professional’s touch; just follow this easy plan on how to clean a boat.
Covering Large Areas
To cover a large area like your hull or deck, mix one part Wet & Forget concentrate with five parts water in a pump sprayer. Apply the mixture evenly over the surface and let it sit — no scrubbing needed!
Or, use Wet & Forget Outdoor’s Xtreme Reach Hose End for large-boat applications.
How does Wet & Forget work to clean your boat? With help from Mother Nature! Its formula combines with wind and rain, over time, to remove stains from mold, mildew and algae.
But it’s important to use it responsibly. So, apply Wet & Forget to your boat 100 feet from ponds, lakes or rivers, and let it dry completely before putting the boat back in the water.
Covering Smaller Areas
To treat smaller areas, grab Wet & Forget Outdoor’s Ready to Use bottle. It’s the same bleach-free, non-acidic formula, but the smaller bottle and built-in sprayer are just right for hard-to-reach areas.
This is the perfect product to clean the boat’s seats as well — just rinse them with water the next day before use.
While you’re at it, kick spiders overboard with Miss Muffet’s Revenge. Just spray a 12-inch band around the perimeter of your boat’s deck or cabin, and you’ll be spider-free for up to 12 months.
That’s how easy it is to clean a boat. And, with unsightly stains, growths and spiders gone, now you’re ready to take that skiff for a spin.
Before you hit the water this season, get your boat clean with Wet & Forget!
