By Wet & Forget

Will Wet & Forget remove algae from boat bottoms?

You stop by the marina and notice algae stains on your boat hull or bottom. Ugh! Wet & Forget Outdoor Cleaner removes nasty algae that can mar boat surfaces and slow you down. Here’s how-

  • Place your boat on the marina’s wash rack, or if your boat is on a trailer, raise it off the bunks or rollers to gain access to the complete bottom.
  • Ensure the boat is at least 100 ft. away from a water source (lake, stream, river, etc.) before applying Wet & Forget.
  • Allow the boat bottom to dry before application.
  • Mix 1 part Wet & Forget Concentrate with 5 parts water in your pump up garden sprayer and apply to the bottom of the boat. Allow time to fully dry.
  • You’re done! Wet & Forget works with the water and wind to do the cleaning for you. No scrubbing or power washing required.

Wet & Forget is non-caustic, non-acidic, and contains no bleach so it’s safe for use on all boat materials including wood, metal, gel coat and fiberglass boats!

 What about sails, covers, and other marine fabrics?

You can use Wet & Forget on boat sails, covers, and other marine fabrics

Water, dampness, and shade provide the perfect scenario for mold and mildew stains to appear on boat and marine fabrics. Sails, boat covers, awnings, tops, dodgers, Biminis, T-tops, and marine upholstery are all susceptible to mold and mildew. If left untreated, these ugly growths will eventually eat away at marine fabrics creating small holes, frayed edges, and premature wear.

Wet & Forget Outdoor cleans up mold and mildew on marine and outdoor fabrics. And Wet & Forget Outdoor is a gentle yet effective formula that is non-caustic, non-acidic, and bleach-free. Wet & Forget extends the life of your boat surfaces, which will prevent future costly repairs.

Here’s how to clean marine, boat, and outdoor fabrics with Wet & Forget:

  • Mix 1 part Wet & Forget Concentrate to 5 parts water in a pump-up garden sprayer.
  • Spray the fabric and allow it to dry thoroughly.
  • That’s it! Wet & Forget will work over time with exposure to the rain and wind to gently clean up green and black stains.
  • Repeat application at the first sign of re-growth to keep your fabrics fresh and stain-free.

How do I rid my boat and dock of marine spiders?

You’re ready for your first fun-filled day on the water and notice that you have marine spiders and webs in the way. No fun! Marine spiders can hide in boat cabins and interiors. They love to shelter in dark, shady places such as under boat covers, awnings, and chairs. Or, in cracks, crevices – any sheltered spot.

Miss Muffet’s Revenge spider killer forms an invisible barrier that keeps them from coming back for up to 12 months. An award-winning sprayer makes it easy to apply the product to watercraft, outdoor fabrics, boathouse interiors – anywhere that arachnids hide. No more spider webs in your face!

Here’s how to apply the product to watercraft and outdoor surfaces:

  • Spray a 12-inch band of product around the perimeter of your deck or cabin.
  • Spray the area until slightly wet. Allow time for surfaces to dry.
  • For optimal results, apply Miss Muffet’s Revenge on a day with no high winds or rain in the weather forecast. The next day, remove spider webs with a broom.

Keep your watercraft clean and pest-free with Wet & Forget and Miss Muffet’s Revenge!

Bonus Tip: While readying your watercraft, inspect it for loose fittings, rivets, or other hardware that may need repair or replacement. Fix any problems or make an appointment at the marina office for a thorough check-up.
