A great cleaning product.

Marine Specialty

I found this product a couple years ago after my house had burned down. The product is amazing, it has cleaned everything that I have tried it on. I had boat a new boat that was a hold over from a dealer that went out of business in 2005. The boat is a 2004 and never been sold but it had sat out side some (but no fading to the red color) and was extremely dirty. I used the Quick N Brite product on it and it all came clean. After wards of course I used 303 to protect it from the uv rays. Just thought the crew might like to know about the product and here is the web address for it.

I use the Hot Sauce products from boat bling and am very happy with the product and outcome. Is this better than or equal too hot sauce?

I have never used Hot Sauce so I can not comment on that.

I would be worried if it is a compound cleaner that it will remove the UV clear coat off the vinyl. I know simple green damages the vinyl.

If you can get a hold of it Malco's leather plastic cleaner is one of the best products out there.

3M, Babes, Meguiars, 303, and Zcare are all products i know are all decent products that are safe to use.

I can account for the Malco product. I detailed my whole boat with it prior to winter lay up and my seats looked awesome. They where actually white and with minimal effort. Spray on let it sit for a minute. Hit it with a stiff brush and wipe off. As with any cleaner I followed up with some babes conditioner. I am now a malco fan and follower.

I think the Malco cleans just a little better than the Babe's seat soap. The trade off IMO is that the Malco makes the seats a little slicker when they first get wet after using it. I have settled in to using Babe's after every weekend of use, and Malco about every 5-6 weekends. I love em both, and finish off with the Babes protectant. Wouldn't have known about either product but for this discussion board.

I use to detail boats with Malco products and know what your talking about. After i was all done cleaning i gave them all a quick rinse and wipe down of water and it seemed to take care of that sticky feeling. Conditioning after cleaning makes a big difference too.

My local Malibu dealer put me onto this stuff called Arco. http://www.alternatetextiles.com.au/new_page_10.htm

Works brilliantly. If you have general day to day marks/dirt just rub on with one cloth and wipe off with another dry one.

If you have dirt/grease/stains deep within the fabric then use a soft bristled scrubbing brush with the application and then just wipe off.

No water required. I bought a 4ltr tub for $40 AUD and every 3 months I give it a really good clean using about 500ml for the whole boat ( Sunscape 20LSV )

I swear by this stuff now. It also brings a gloss finish to stained alloy ( I use it on my foil racks ) , wood, etc ( see site ) .

Yep, postage from Australia to USA may be cost prohibitive but worth looking into.

I was told by the dealership to utilize Simple Green? I thought it was safe for the vinyl.

What about removing sunblock from seats. are these the best products? I have some SB residue on my seats and was needing a safe and affective way to remove it. Thanks
