For cleaning or washing the topsides and the deck of your boat, use the same procedure. In the spring, I recommend deep cleaning the fiberglass surfaces and stripping off any old wax or polish that might inhibit the attachment of the new polish. To do this first rinse the surface with water to get as much dirt and grit off and then wash with a solution of Boat Clean Plus and water at a ratio of 1:4, followed by a scrubbing with Boat Scrub. Use a deck brush on the non-skid areas and a Marine Power Mitt, sponge or rag on the smooth parts. Don't use the deck brush on the smooth parts or you will scratch these areas. Rinse the surface well and let dry. Both of these products are non-corrosive, biodegradable and free rinsing, so they will not leave any residue behind. This cleaning will also remove scum or slime, exhaust soot, scuff marks, etc.
