After applying a coat of wax, yahtsmen shouldn't ruin their hard work
by stripping it off with a harsh soap. Shurhold Industries'
Brite Wash is specially-formulated to clean a boat's fragile surface
without damaging its finish.
A money-saving, multi-purpose wash, it's designed to clean fiberglass,
metal, rubber and painted surfaces. Highly powerful and
effective, only 30 mL of this powerful wash cleans a 12.2 m boat,
allowing one 948 mL bottle to last for months.
Environmentally-friendly, this wash is great for removing a variety of
substances, including dirt, grease and salt without dulling a boat's
finish or stripping away wax and polish. Brite Wash's softeners help
prevent hard water stains, providing a sparkling, unblemished surface.
Don't forget to add life-saving equipment to
your list of pre-season checks urges leading
