Besides a vacuum cleaner,how do you clean your boat carpet when it gets dirty?
I figured out what an avatar is.

If mine get real dirty I use carpet cleaner, mix it up in a bucket and use a scrub brush. I then just hose it down pull the drain plug and let it dry. I have a 19.2 Champion boat and it does a good job. Crank the dolly wheel until it get in an angle that allows it to drain. Also those carpet cleaners in a can that foam up work well for smaller areas.

I use Oxyclean. Mix it with some warm water and use a scrub brush. Hose it out. The I use the wet dry vac to suck out most of the water. Then sun dry for freshness :rolleyes: .

I have used that stuff exclusively for two years now after I tried it on my Sea Nymph. It whips stains and dirt like nothing. Shad guts, blood, catfish slime, 2-cycle oil, etc. It gets them all out. I'll put a cup in a 5 gallon bucket of hot water and get the scrub brush. Just soak the carpet with the stuff and let it sit for about 15 minutes, then scrub it. I have not had a stain yet that didn't clean up. Plus, the stuff doesn't smell bad either.

It also does a great job on water scum lines on the hull. I've used it on a lot of clean up jobs and it works great. I can get a gallon of the stuff at Sam's for about $8 or so.

I'm a Simple Green fan too...haven't found anything it won't clean. I even scrub my concrete with it before I pressure wash. Good stuff.
