Dockmaster Multipurpose Cleaner and
owner of a boat detailing company in the Pacific Northwest, I often see boats
that haven’t had a wash all winter only to be covered with green or black
mildew in their non-skid and general dust and dirt covering the gel coat by
spring. I arrived at a boat in that condition recently and instead of trying a
different product to clean each type of dirt or grime as I usually do, I
decided to try the Dockmaster’s Multipurpose Cleaner and Degreaser.
I was working on was a 30’ motoryacht that hadn’t been washed all winter and
had a solid growth of black mold in the non-skid. Black mold shows up as small
black specs in the non-skid “pockets” and it’s not something that can typically
be scrubbed out with just soap and water. I usually use a chemical cleaner that
has bleach in it to kill mold and mildew. Although a bleach-based cleaner kills
the mold and turns the non-skid white again, it is definitely not biodegradable
and can be irritable to skin and lungs if you get it on your skin or breath the
fine mist when spraying it. I wanted to find a better multipurpose cleaner that
was still strong enough to eat away at the black mold in the non-skid as well
as general dirt and grease, yet was also safer to use, “green” and less
thing about a quart size bottle of Dockmaster’s multipurpose cleaner is that
it’s concentrated, so a little goes a long way while taking up less space in
your storage locker or dock box and saving you a lot of money not having to buy
several different cleaners. I mixed a small amount in a gallon of water, took a
soft deck brush and dipped it in the bucket and then ran it all over the
non-skid of the 30’ cruiser I was working on. I let the cleaner sit on the
non-skid for about a minute and then took a scrub brush to the non-skid and the
black mold came right out. It also cleaned up the edges of the non-skid where
general dust and dirt had collected over winter. What was also impressive is
that the multipurpose cleaner didn’t smell like a strong chemical (in fact,
it’s completely odorless), it didn’t irritate my skin when some of the cleaner
and water mixture splashed on my hand and it didn’t cause the gel coat to
yellow as will happen when you spray a strong chemical cleaner on gel coat that
doesn’t have a good coat of wax on it.
had the chance to use this multipurpose cleaner in the open cockpit area of
this boat where there were a few greasy footprints from the mechanic who had
been on board a few days prior. With my same gallon of cleaner and water
mixture, I dipped my deck brush in it and ran it over the non-skid and sides of
the cockpit. The grease marks came out without having to use any other product
or a course scrub brush.
many products that I find at the marine supply stores to see which ones really
work and which ones will actually make our job a bit easier. I am very pleased
with the results I achieved using the multipurpose cleaner on a boat that
hadn’t been washed in a long time. And now that marinas in our area are
cracking down on what types of cleaning products we use and actually checking
our dock cart to see if we are washing or cleaning boats with strong chemicals
or non-biodegradable products, this product will definitely pass their test and
allow us to still clean even the dirtiest of boats without violating the new
rules that are being put into place.
definitely recommend this product to boaters. It’s a great way to replace
several strong and non-green cleaners with one multipurpose biodegradable
cleaner that works well on several different types of stains.
