Default How to clean your boat?

* To clean fiberglass stains, try making a paste of baking soda and
water. Use a sponge or soft cloth and gently rub the mix into the
stain. This paste can also be used to clean onboard showers and heads.
While baking soda is an excellent all-around cleaner, keep in mind that
it is abrasive, so use with care. Use lemon or lime juice as a final
wipe-down for a shiny, fresh-smelling finish.

* For cleaner windows and mirrors, mix vinegar, lemon juice and warm
water. Buy a spray bottle for a dollar and fill it with the solution.
Spray it on your windows and wipe with paper towels or newspapers.

* If the chrome on your boat has lost some of its luster, use apple
cider vinegar on a soft cotton cloth to rub it clean. Then, grab a
fresh cloth and add a dab of baby oil to restore it to a bright shine.

* Does your boat have copper fittings that are turning dingy? Make a
paste of either lemon or lime juice and salt. Rub gently to clean. The
citrus adds a nice, fresh scent.

* To clean any plastic surface on your boat, a mixture of white vinegar
and warm water will do the trick.

* As an alternative to bleach, use hydrogen peroxide. The more water
you add to the peroxide, the weaker the strength of the peroxide
solution will become. Remember that hydrogen peroxide will bleach
carpet, towels and other fabrics, so use it with caution.

* Any interior woods can be cleaned by using olive oil or almond oil.
The oil will provide natural moisturizers for the wood and add shine at
the same time. Don't use these oils on exterior surfaces, however,
since they don't hold up in direct sun.
