Re: Should I try to clean my own sails

What size is your boat? I cleaned my sails on a 26' that I had, they were dirty and had rust marks on them. I filled up my tub with water and some clorox and let the sails soak one at a time for a few hours. I then layed the sails out over my fence. They came out looking like new. No need to scrub. I hope you have it as easy. I wouldn't have done this to new sails though as the clorox might be tough on them.
