A leading supplier of professional boat maintenance services, Cleantogleam, has added two new products to its cleaning range. New Canopy Cleaner and Canopy Protector are free from harsh, caustic products to clean and protect boat canopies without damage.
Cleantogleam Canopy Cleaner has been developed to remove, dirt, mildew and grease from boat covers and bimini tops. It can be used safely on most coated canvas and vinyl fabrics.
Gary Winter, owner of Cleantogleam, said: “We recommend dampening the canopy first with a fine mist spray. Never use a pressure washer as it could harm the fabric. Once the cover is wet, apply the canopy cleaner with a telescopic brush, working it in to create a soapy surface. Leave it to soak through, then use a stiff brush to release the dirt and algae. Finally, rinse the canopy until the water runs clean. You might need to repeat the procedure for stubborn stains.”
Cleantogleam Canopy Protector is a transparent, non-greasy liquid for protecting and prolonging the life of a boat’s canopy, covers and biminis. Using hydrophobic nanotechnology technology, it inhibits the growth of mould and mildew by repelling dirt and moisture. Ideal for canvas, vinyl and leatherette fabrics, the protector creates a waterproof and UV barrier, helping to prevent weathering.
Gary added: “To keep a newly cleaned canopy looking good for longer, Cleantogleam Canopy Protector should be applied 24 hours after cleaning, once the cover is completely dry. The protector can be used while the canopy is on or off the boat.”
CleantogleamCanopy Cleaner and Canopy Protector can be bought individually or together as part of a duo pack.
