cleaning canvas

canvas is stained...can I clean them with a special cleaning product?

Hi Kathy,
Yes, with the right product, you should be able to get your boat enclosure pretty clean. You asked this question on the boat enclosure form so I will assume that is what you are trying to clean.
Starting with the clear vinyl. Rinse and remove salt deposit and other debris with a clean chamois cloth, and allow to dry. You will need to know what type of plastic it is.
If it is strataglass, they recommend only Imar cleaning products and will, in fact, void any warranty claim as can be seen here.
If you are sure it is not strataglass, then you can use plexus, davies klear to sea, 210 and novus for scratches.
All of these products are excellent, just follow there directions.

The three main products that I recommend for canvas; are Starbrite canvas cleaner, Iosso mold mildew and 303 products in that order. If you leave the product on a little longer, you will have better results. These products are only for canvas and not for plastic.

Hope this helps.
Thanks for the question,
