Water spot removal-easy with these!

Hey guys,



My wife went to a girls cleaning party and came home with these amazing car/boat polishing clothes that remove hard water spots with water and a cloth and a polishing clothes. We now use them throughout the season and put a little Lucas speedwax for waxing and the boat shines. So easy and no chemicals, water only. The clothes don't strip wax either. We were using vinegar before this and it worked well, but smelled and I believe it strips the wax off.



Check out the video. This will make your boat ownership so much easier and enjoyable.

That video showed me two things:

1) That is far more work than I currently do with just a spay wax

2) NFW I ever want a black get coat boat. And I thought red was bad.

This boat is red and black worst of both worlds. That is after playing for three straight days in over 90 degree heat.

I have used boat bling as well, and it is awesome. However, that stuff is expensive. You get a few people with these clothes all working at the same time and it's done in a matter of minutes.

Then throw in the wash with detergent and no softner and ready to go again.

water - vinegar - and a bit of carwash in a spray bottle - cheap and doesn't remove wax.

Only problem is the smell of vinegar makes me want to puke. So I pay for spray wax.

Yes, boat bling does rock. If your using it and don't mind the price, keep going.

Vinegar works as well, but I understand it takes off wax

Here in NM, a wetted cloth won't remove the hard water spots,so that a no go for us.


These are nice because there are times we use them and don't have to spray wax that day. The water still beads up. You can use these things over and over and over. No chemicals which is cool.

They are a fine microfiber.
