Bilge cleaning on the lift...what method?
Apr 5th, 2013 at 2:36pm
 
I sometimes have a little bit of water in my bilge because my boat doesn't sit on the lift at enough of an angle to drain (fixing that soon). Because there's that water there, it has gotten a little dirty over the last year and I want to clean it up. There's no oil or anything, just dirty from the water.

What is a method that is safe for the lake when it drains out and will get my bilge clean?

Add a little Lemon Fresh Joy. Every time you clean the boat run some water in the bilge until the pump runs. The after the pump shuts off add some more Lemon Fresh Joy for the next time.

Everything is better when it smells clean.
