FREE Boat U.S. Hat
Cheap hand cleaner
Many jobs on the boat can leave
your hands filthy. For a fast-and-effective hand cleaner that’s good
at removing grease and grime,
pour a little olive oil on your hands
along with a sprinkling of sugar.
Wipe with a paper towel, then wash
your hands with soap and water.
Easy paint removal
Unwanted paint splashes on fiberglass
or metal surfaces and adhesive residue
can be easily removed with Easy-Off
oven cleaner. (Avoid using on unpainted
surfaces.) For best results, spray it on,
allow it to sit for a few minutes, then
wipe off with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.
It removes the wax from the boat,
too, so be sure to reapply or you’ll be
left with a dull spot. Test with a small
amount in an inconspicuous spot to be
sure it won’t damage the surface.
Disposable gloves are great at keeping
hands clean, but getting them on can be
a pain if your mitts are sweaty. Lightly
dusting your hands with talc will make
latex and nitrile gloves slip on easily. To
keep your hands clean when removing
dirty gloves, gently grasp the cuff of one
glove, pull it off until it’s inside out, then
use the clean inside part to grasp the
other cuff, pull it off, and then toss them
both in the trash. Voilà, clean hands!
