Re: Should I try to clean my own sails
My sail maker said to use oxiclean. The 1st time I used it, I washed the mainsail while still on the mast. (Wash with soft brush, rinse and raise the sail another 4 feet.) Came out great and I was shocked at how well oxiclean cleaned the cabin top too with no effort. Ever since, I've used oxiclean for washing sails & topsides.
Isn't oxyclean just oxalic acid, ie Bartenders Friend and a thousand other products?
