The One Simple Cleaner That Made Our Used Boat Look New

It’s been an exciting summer at our house! My husband Dave, who practically grew up on the lakes of Minnesota, has been dreaming of a boat of his own for years. A few months ago we finally made that dream come true! After much online searching, he ended up finding the fishing boat of his dreams (that also fit our budget) in his home state of Minnesota and made the 2,500-mile round-trip trek to fetch it.

After that long drive, the boat was a bit worse for the wear in terms of cleanliness. And since it’s a used boat, the carpet also needed some tender-loving care. Enter Oxi-Clean™.

I had been contacted by the maker of OxiClean™ about a possible collaboration, and when they heard about the recent purchase of our “new-to-us” boat, they were excited about the opportunity to get involved. We made a plan to collaborate and use OxiClean™ Versatile Stain Remover to make our boat really shine! The kind folks at OxiClean™ were SO excited that they even sent a video crew from CafeMedia out to our home to document the process!

With the help of our 3 boys (technically they’re all MEN, but they’ll always be boys to us!), Dave and I braved temperatures in the 90’s to tackle the boat restoration project. It was a lot of work but doing it as a team made it a lot of fun too…and the results were more than worth it!

I’d never given much thought to using OxiClean™ for anything beyond my laundry, but I was excited to discover how many other uses it has. We used it to give the carpet in our boat a thorough cleaning and it now looks practically brand new! I was beyond excited, because bringing “well-loved” items back to their former glory is one of my favorite things to do. 🙂
