Why are your products better than the competition?


John G asked:
Why are your products better than the competition?
The vinyl on my boat looks OK but how can I get it really clean and protect it against UV and ground in dirt.
For your convenience, I’ve highlighted the hyperlinks. Click on the hyperlink to get more information about the selected product.
EZ Vinyl Cleaner is really tough on dirt but at the same time easy on the vinyl. It won’t rot the threads or leave pink spots. It’s all you need to clean most boat vinyl. Wet the vinyl with water, spray on a fine mist and use a scrub brush to work the dirt out of the grain and rinse clean.

If the vinyl is really dirty or has some superficial stains (indelible stains cannot be removed from vinyl), use a 50/50 solution of EZ Vinyl Cleaner and Boat Scrub and use sponges, rags and a scrub brush to get it clean.

Once clean, protect the seats with 2 coats of Vinyl Guard. Just wipe it on with a folded, lint free, white, cotton cloth, like an old T shirt or use a sponge. Vinyl Guard is not slippery or greasy, won’t wash off with water or get slimy when wet, will protect your vinyl against UV, suntan lotion, food and beverages spills, bird poop, even mold. A single application is good for about 3 to 4 months. I also recommend protecting your vinyl at the end of season, before winter storage, to protect against mold damage.

No, it’s not a typo. The sun pad on my boat was cleaned and protected with your competitor’s products and then the left side gone over with yours. It’s a miracle. I know, you say you don’t sell miracles, but I disagree. Your vinyl products are amazing. This is the first time that I bought a product for my boat that exceeded my expectations.

Close up photo showing the remarkable difference. The right side felt a little stiff and dry because it’s an older boat but the left side felt softer and more luxurious. I’d say, better than new and I love that it’s not slippery.

Results of cleaning and protecting with other guys products on the right. Results of cleaning and protecting with your products on the left, after it was cleaned with the other products. I used your EZ Vinyl Cleaner and Boat Scrub to get the years of ground in dirt out and then protected it with your Vinyl Guard. True, it was a little more work, but WOW. If it stays like this all summer, like you claim, then by the end of the summer I will have save a lot of time and effort because I won’t have to re-do it every few weeks.

A neighbor asked me who reupholstered my boat and how much it cost :). I’m so proud.

If your other products are ½ as good as these, count me in. I’m dying to try your EZ Buff on the hull and VS721 to keep the algae off my boat bottom.

Thanks a million.
