Take advice from real users like Christy, the 5th CLR Brands™ 101 Uses contest winner from Springfield, MO. Christy shares, "I use CLR Brands™ on my boat and trailer after we pull it out of the lake. It easily removes the grime from the lake that builds up on it if you don't remove it properly.


How to Clean Fiberglass and Stainless Steel Parts

Use Calcium, Lime & Rust Remover— for gunk that can build-up on components of your boat. When it comes to cleaning stainless steel parts like your boat ladder, cleats, cup holders, and connector flanges. You can also use it to keep your boat’s fiberglass body clean and smooth. A clean hull can help reduce drag by providing a smooth surface so your boat can move easier through the water… saving you gas! Just mix equal amounts of CLR Brands™ with warm water, apply directly to the surface and rinse with cold water. 

How to Clean Vinyl Seats

Use Outdoor Furniture Cleaner—A specially formulated, non-abrasive formula removes outdoor dirt and grime quickly and easily from the vinyl and canvas on your boat. It’s pet safe and contains UV protectants to shield surfaces from fading and discoloration. Just spray, let soak to allow dirt to loosen, then wipe clean with a cloth or sponge. Then rinse with cool, clean water.

Cleaning Tough Stains on Fabric or Deck Carpet

Use Stain-Free Carpet, Floor and Fabric Cleaner—An all-purpose, multi-surface stain remover compromised of an eco-friendly formula removes tough water stains and spots. And when you're done with your boat, you can use CLR Brands™ Stain Magnet for your home. It’s great for painted walls, hardwood floors, baseboards, glass, metal, brick, concrete, marble, laminated countertops, and more.

How to Clean Mold or Mildew

Use Mold & Mildew Clear—A safer and more effective cleaner than bleach, you can use it for tough mold or mildew stains on vinyl and fabric surfaces. The foam sprayer was designed to give you a more direct application preventing splash back as well as mold spores from spreading in the air— spray and wipe.

Winterizing your boat is a thorough process; however, it is just as important to check your work before you bring your boat out for the season. Check every part of your boat before putting it back in the water and clean with CLR Brands™ Products as necessary.
