AFTER a summer in the marina, dust, pollen, bugs.. and fall bird droppings...it reeks like poo and pee...so I'm thinking...can I go to the laundry mat and throw it in an industrial sized wash machine to clean it up..or is it a scrub and spray thing??

I wash mine in the landro mat all the time. I just dont use any soap. Works great.

we mix a bucket of car wash soap and water and use a broom ans just scrub it and rinse with the hose. works well.

I take mine to the laundry mat, add oxy clean, some detergent, and run it through...comes out super clean. <BR>Then I just re-apply a water proofer/protectant. I like to use 303's Fabric guard, no complaints. <BR> <BR>The only issue I have is, the previous owner let the boat sit wet too long and the cover has mildew stains on the inside that I cannot get off.

Justin- Follow what dave said. If you uses a trash barrel, fill it 2/3s of the way and use about 3/4 a bottle of bleach and a bunch of car soap and use the broom handle and stir it like every 10 minutes for an hour or longer and the mildew stains will go away

Take it to the laundry mat. Just dont put it in the dryer. Mine came out fine.

Eric -that's a great idea, thanks <BR>I will try that tomorrow and let you know how it turns out. <BR> <BR>...forgot to mention -I put mine in the giant dryer on "air dry" just to wring out the water.
