No matter how clean a boat is, spots left behind from soap or hard water are unsightly, and make all the hard work washing it for naught. With a few Clean-N-Simple Tips from Shurhold Industries and the right tools, it's fast and easy to get a showroom-like finish.

In many cases, water spots develop from using too much soap or one not meant for the application, such as dish detergent. A product developed specifically for boats, such as Shurhold's Brite Wash, quickly removes salt, grime and dirt, without stripping wax. Because it's often used around water, it's biodegradable and won't harm aquatic life.

It's important to keep all water as clean as possible. That's why Shurhold developed its Bucket Grate. As part of its One Bucket System, the innovative device sits at the bottom of a standard 20 liter bucket. It allows dirt and grime from the washing tool to fall through the baffle and includes two built-in 89mL measuring cups for accurate soap proportioning.

Even rinse water can cause spots if it has a high mineral content. The key is to remove it as soon as possible. Shurhold's 30cm Flexible Water Blade molds to flat and curved shapes, wiping away water to leave a bone-dry surface. It's so effective, it does the work of a traditional chamois in about one-third the time.

Dedicated to educating boat owners, Shurhold provides key tips for boat value preservation at shurhold.com. Inventor of the One Handle Does It All system, Shurhold manufactures specialty care items and accessories to clean, polish and detail.
