Re: Stainless polish for use in the sun
We have become fans of Spotless Stainless. Though quite dear, it does do as advertised. It seems to be extending the time between applications, as well, conditioning the s/s as claimed.
When working in the tropical sun of the Caribbean, my mate uses plastic bags (supermarket) to wrap around the work area after application and if necessary, the bags can be dampened after wrapping to keep them cool. If the product seems to be drying too quickly (15 minutes) DO NOT LET IT DRY, she reapplies and rewraps. The longer the product is on, the longer the process works to keep the rust from reappearing. I'm hoping that after another year or so of applications, our s/s will actually be stainless, as it is supposed to be.
By the way, we are full time cruisers, always anchored out, and we do not wash down the s/s often, so our s/s gets a lot of salt sitting on it. Obviously, if your boat is marina bound and wash down after every trip, you will probably not have this problem.
