Admit it: stainless steel is your favorite boat material.
And why not? Stainless steel is very convenient. It’s highly
resistant to rusting, highly capable of handling plenty of exposure to water,
and even resistant to corrosion from acids. It’s one of the best materials on
earth for using in boats–and not only that, but it looks good while doing it.
Its chrome-like finish can highlight some areas of your boat in a way that
fiberglass never could.
Your stainless steel helps protect your boat, so make sure that you
also take good care of your favorite boat material by cleaning it every so
often. Not only will proper care help the performance of your stainless steel,
but it will help your boat keep its brand-new sheen. Of course, that only works
if you know what steps–and what cleaner–will best get the job done:
Step 1: Prepare
Preparing for cleaning is often just as important as the
cleaning itself. When you clean your house, for example, you clear your
furniture of blankets, pillows, and other household objects so you can do your
work efficiently. Since you’ll be working with a cleaner that’s also an
irritant, you’ll want to keep the area clear of pets and small children–just
to be safe.
It will be the same with your boat’s stainless steel. Clear it
of basic dust and debris with a damp cloth. There’s no need to go overboard
here; simply remove any excess debris with a quick wipe and make sure you hit
all of the surface area. If you notice a lot of water spots staying on the
stainless steel, then dry thoroughly with a fresh towel so that you’re ready
for the next step.
Step 2: Apply Cleaner
Will any old detergent do? Of course not! We recommend
specialized Stainless Steel Cleaner for your boat’s
stainless steel. The non-streaking formula contained within is perfect for
stainless steel–which is bright enough to show spots and streaks. And it’s
very easy to spray on and wipe off, making “Step Two” perhaps the easiest step
in the bunch.
Step 3: Wipe Off
Use a fresh towel to wipe off the Stainless Steel Cleaner and
give your stainless steel a quick once-over. You shouldn’t notice any streaks
If you want to go the extra mile, press your thumb to the
stainless steel once it’s properly cleaned off and see if your fingerprint
remains. Our Stainless Steel Cleaner helps stainless steel to be resistant to
fingerprints, so if it’s been applied effectively, you should notice your
stainless steel retaining its shine and consistency.
That’s it. You’re done. There’s a reason stainless steel is one
of the best materials around, and it’s not only because it makes for great
cookware. Stainless steel is easy to manage and easy to clean–especially if
you know the steps and apply the non-streaking cleaner designed specifically
for the material.
