We here at A.R. Blue Clean are wishing all of you anglers an awesome year out on the water.
Hopefully most of your attention will be used to find that perfect fishing hole and playing that trophy fish just right. To ensure you get endless hours out on the lake it is important to take care of all your equipment, especially your boat.
You might have noticed pulling your boat out of storage this year that it is a little more dirty then when you put it in. It is not uncommon for dust and dirt to settle on boats stored indoors. Bugs, dirt and dust will plaster you boat during the weekend journeys to the lake and back home. Regularly washing, waxing and touching up the hull of your boat will go a long way to protect your boat.
1. Use a pressure washer to clean your boat. A pressure washer will save you time and energy and help you to get those hard to reach spots.
2. Use environmentally friendly A.R. Blue Clean Boat Detergent. Household cleaners can be very alkaline which will damage the finish on your boat. It is important to use a detergent specifically made to use on a boat.
3. Use a scrubber brush or utility brush. Sometimes you need a little extra cleaning action to get the grim and seasoned dirt off your boat. Both these brushes will help and are soft enough to use on multiple surfaces.
