Re: Sail Cleaning

My main is pretty dingy too. I was going to scrub it with a laundry detergent and a soft brush on the service dock of our club. Your idea of upgrading to the oxy detergent seems a smart one. Perhaps I will go you one further, soak the sail as you did, overnight, then follow up with a scrub with the sail laid out on the dock. Finally I can blast it with the hose and leave it to dry for a bit.
