Also deposits and mold are easy to remove from your boat cushions.

Cleaning boat cushions: get started!

Especially for cleaning cloth there is Ultramar Sprayhood & Tent Shampoo.

Follow these simple steps for a professional result.

1. brushing
Brush the boat cushions with a soft, firm brush and lukewarm water. Be careful not to brush too hard. This step is only intended to remove the worst dirt. If you apply too much force, you may damage the fabric.

2. Spray Ultramar Sprayhood & Tent Shampoo on the canvas
Because the cloth is already wet, you can foam it well and brush the dirt loose.

3. Leave to act for about 15 minutes.
The dirt that has not yet been loosened by steps 1 and 2 is soaked off by the shampoo in these 15 minutes.

4. Remove all shampoo and dirt
Again, use lukewarm water and a soft, firm brush. Because the shampoo has done its job, you do not have to brush hard. Use plenty of water to rinse all shampoo off the cloth.

Let Power Cleaner act for about 1 hour. Don't see any change? Spray extra Ultramar Power Cleaner, brush and let it work again. Repeat these steps until the stains are gone. This can sometimes take several hours. Then rinse well.

Step 3: Let it dry
Let the cloth dry thoroughly.

Step 4: Impregnate
When the cloth has dried well, you can use an impregnating agent to make it water-repellent again.
