Use Boat-Specific Products

By: Barry Berhoff

QuestionWhy can’t I use my car soap or dish soap to wash my boat?

AnswerWe are all looking for products that can do more for less, but sometimes it is important to pick job-specific products. Do not use your car soap or dish soap on your boat. Typically, these soaps are not designed to rinse into the local waterway and may be harmful to the marine environment. Additionally, dish soap is much stronger and formulated differently, so you run the potential of stripping your wax. A quality boat soap will be environmentally friendly, won’t strip your wax and will help prevent water spots.
