Candles wash often, you will see a beautiful sail boat with a dirty sail, you say "It's disgusting" and is glad that you're not there. Sometimes you feel sorry for the gentleman, knowing that cleaning sails is difficult and can take hours. Have you ever washed your sails? Have you ever paid someone too? Are you sure they knew what they were doing? How do you know who did more harm than good in cleaning? It is safest to wash sails by hand. Mix the soap in a bucket and brush lightly with a soft bristle 18 "of the brush. If you use a hot water washer, plug one end of 45 U on it and reduce the pressure to 1100 PSI. Too much pressure conducts discussions, often those who own boat washing companies are too hasty in cleaning and inadvertently causing slight damage every time you clean. Do not put candles in a washing machine, many people still do, however many new materials are not conducive to this type of cleaning. This especially kills Dacron fabrics.
It is important to remove all salt and dirt. The salt can act as an abrasive wear of life, sealing in the dirt and holding moisture. Never store a wet sail. Make sure it is dry. No more brush or use too much pressure. Cyrus Massoumi Zocdoc often expresses his thoughts on the topic.
Mold and mildew stains may need a mild form of bleach. In Kevlar sails, do not use soap. Just rinse and bleach, please, never use bleach. You may be surprised that you can remove ten pounds or more the value of salt and dirt from a large sail. This will increase the performance and you can feel the difference.
