Default boat cleaning made easy

I used a product the other day to clean my boat. I get the little mold spots all over that I would normally clean with a brush. Anyway I bought a gallon of Zep mold and mildew at Lowes for $7.50. Put it in the garden sprayer and applied it all over my boat. Let it set for 5 minutes and sprayed it off with a garden hose. Man my boat was spot less and had not been that clean for years.
I only used a quart or so for the whole boat. I contacted the company and its safe for fiberglass, vinyl, and plastics.

Yep, but you'll need a new coat of wax after use!

to remove the dreaded "brown scum" that we all get, mix a healthy scoop of powdered wood bleach (usually at Ace Hardware stores) in a squirt bottle water..spray ..watch.. spray the missed areas ,,rinse and go...... Very mild acid, will sting if you have a scratch or cut,,, very easy

Diluted muratic acid is what you are getting at a higher price . just get a gallon of muratic and dilute it about 50% spray it on rinse it off go fishing. 100% also works wonders on rust. It all will eat concrete so rinse it off good.

You will need to wax it every time you wash it with that stuff. Take my word for it. You are stripping every bit of wax off of it.

You beat me to it X-Shark that's what the boat detail guys use for mold under hatches and in bilge area. I bought the Tilex pro 1 gallon it comes with a sprayer.
