To maintain your boat’s good condition, clean it out and wash it thoroughly with soapy water. Rinse carefully and check that no dirt or foreign bodies such as shell, sand or fishing hooks are left inside that might deteriorate the fabric.
For tar stains use a gentle, non abrasive cleanser such as Jif, or use a recommended Inflatable Boat Cleaner available from most boat chandlery outlets
Do not use abrasive or aggressive chemical compounds, warm soapy water is best in most situations.
Do not use any solvents, petrol, etc (PVC models), use solvents sparingly only on Hypalon models.Test any cleaner on a piece of patch material if in doubt.
