Orange Off Inflatable Boat Cleaner

Orange Off Inflatable Boat Cleaner, Adhesive, Bottom Paint & Barnacle Remover is a highly concentrated, biodegradable citrus cleaner and degreaser made from D'limolene, an ultra powerful cleaning chemical that is derived from the cells of orange peels. Orange Off's emulsifier safely dissolves adhesives, mold stains, grease, oil, lime deposits, oxidation and waterline stains and is considered the "Goo Gone" of the inflatable boat industry. Orange Off contains no synthetic chemicals, petroleum distillates or harmful detergents which damage inflatable boat tube fabric. The above pictured inflatable on the left was sitting outside filled with water for 2 years. We simply sprayed Orange Off on the tube, let it sit for 10 seconds, used the scrub pad that is included and wiped clean. The second boat from the left is a 10 year old inflatable that we pulled out of a dumpster. We sprayed the tube, let it sit for 20 seconds, scrubbed it with the scrub pad for 10 seconds and wiped it clean. All traces of dirt, mold and grime were gone. The third boat is a Caribe inflatable covered with barnacles and growth on the fabric under the waterline. We simply sprayed the area, allowed it to sit for 30 seconds and scrubbed for about 30 seconds with the pad. The picture to the right is a 1982 Achilles SR124 found in a dumpster. If you don't find that Orange Off is the most effective cleaner, adhesive & barnacle remover on the market, simply return the unused portion for a full refund. Also works on plastic, fiberglass and injection molded kayaks and boat hulls. When applying a patch after using Orange Off, clean area well with Toluene or MEK. A 6"x 9" scrubbing pad is included. Naturally orange scented. Available in quarts, gallons or 1 oz. travel size.
