Sometimes the best approach an excellent but simple one!!
Okay, so i know this is called tech corner, and I usually write about exciting stuff like interactive voice response systems, but everybody has to have a hobby, right? Well mine is boating, which is really fun until fall when you have to winterize and put things away for the winter (at least you need this here in Northern Ohio).
So I have a sailboat, a jet ski, and a dinghy. The dinghy stays in the water and the bottom is truly gross by October, even though i take it out and clean it once in a while. The waterline of my sailboat is equally gross, it has bottom paint on it, but the area just above the line where the bottom paint ends has several inches of green slime growing there as well. Ditto for the back of the jet ski, as well as several fenders that hold my boat away from the dock during storms. If you allow this growth to dry, they literally become part of the boat, extremely hard to remove.
If you go to your local boat store or web site they will tell you that you need somewhat expensive products to properly clean these, there is a separate product needed for boat bottoms, and a gel for waterlines, etc. These contain some sort of acid, and you need to wear gloves, and apply this stuff several times, and still scrub and scrub. So I was out of all of this today, and just tried a Brillo pad and some Tide on the bottom of the dinghy. WOW! came clean soooo easy compared to the more expensive methods, so i decided to see about my waterline, same thing!! So here, this new convert went around scrubbing all day, effortlessly removing a whole seasons lake scum buildup off everything within reach of my dock, fortunately my dog was safe inside the boat!
I say, move over, WD-40 and duct tape, we all know there are tons of testimonials dedicated to your wonders, I found a few old time products that also don’t cost much and work great!!
