Vinyl Clean and Conditioning

Post by Hula Boat Care » Sun Aug 09, 2015 6:23 pm

We have read several blogs and forums discussing the proper approach to cleaning and maintaining vinyl surfaces and thought we would share a few ideas.

Some of the discussions talked about using magic eraser, aggressive cleaners, mild cleaners, multi-surface cleaners, using scrub brushes, cloth and more.

We subscribe to the theory that you start with warm water and a mild soap. I have used a terry cloth towel for this first step on several occasions. And, this is what the marine vinyl manufacturers recommend - at least as a first approach. Always test in an inconspicuous area first, perfect your technique and then replicate across a wider area.

And, avoid anything with an abrasive surface. Leave as much material there for the long haul.

When mild soap and warm water is not enough, we recommend that you use a vinyl cleaner and conditioner. There are many different cleaners on the market but cleaning is only the half of it. You must protect the surface. At Hula we offer a vinyl cleaner and conditioner or at least recommend that you use a product that is designed for marine grade vinyl and always follow-up with a conditioner. Critical step that is overlooked far to often. You can learn more at

I've been following 97 Fastech's technique...he sprays it down heavy with Hula Vinyl Cleaner. Let's it sit. Then he rubs in it like a massage and it seems to do an awesome job. Gets a lot of dirt out of even clean looking vinyl.
