Cleaning your boat deck takes some special attention. You want to make sure you’re cleaning, buffing and waxing properly without leaving a slippery surface.

He starts by cleaning with Super Clean to remove all the dirt and grime build-up, plus it removes old wax so you have a clean surface to start with. Check it out here:
Boat carpet can really be a pain to clean, especially those that have a lot of fibers that trap the dirt and grime. But Super Clean goes to work on contact to break down the dirt and make is easy to rinse away. Even stains from food, drinks and bait keepers are no match for Super Clean’s powerful formula. Super Clean sponsored Pro Angler, Vince Hurtado, shows just how quickly and easily Super Clean works for cleaning his boat carpet in this video:
When cleaning your boat seats, it may work best to remove them completely. It will give you the flexibility to clean the tops, as well as underneath and the areas where the seat poles insert into the floor. After cleaning them, make sure to apply a conditioner to keep the vinyl supple and prevent cracking. Tom Hankins shows how he cleans his seats in this video:
Scum Lines on the Hull
It’s hard to take pride in your boat when scum lines run the length of the hull. But Super Clean Pro Angler, Alex Klein knows that using a little Super Clean right when you come off the water helps to remove that scum quickly and easily. Maintenance cleaning like that also makes the end of the season clean up faster and easier. See how he does it here:
If you leave your boat in the water all season, that scum line could be a little more work to remove. Many boat owners are familiar with products like muriatic acid, but Super Clean’s All Wheel Cleaner provides a biodegradable and phosphate-free alternative that works better and is easier on the environment. Our All Wheel Cleaner removes the dirt, grime, algae and water staining with less scrubbing and more effective cleaning as shown in this video:
After your boat is cleaned, don’t forget to the trailer too. Super Clean will remove grease build-up on the winch, dirt, grime and algae from the rails or bunks, and it will clean your wheels too! For an extra shine, use our All Wheel Cleaner on the rims to keep it looking sharp. In this video, Tom Hankins shows how he uses Super Clean to do a thorough cleaning job on his trailer wheels:
Don’t put a dirty cover on your clean boat. Super Clean also works great on canvas. Lay the cover on the grass, spray it down with some water and Super Clean.
