Top 10 Tuesdays: Top 10 Cleaning Products For A Boat

I know I have said it before, but for those who didn't know - I am a bit of a neat freak.  Not OCD, per say, but I definitely like where I live to be clean, organized and tidy.  This is especially important when you live on a small boat where leaving, say, a stack of magazines on the table can make the space look messy.  In addition to being very tidy, I like to keep the boat clean.  That way, it smells nice and we avoid germs and bug infestations.  Here are our:


  1. Simple Green - This is my go-to every day and everywhere cleaner.  There's nothing this stuff can't do and it has such a nice, fresh scent that I love.  It's also non-toxic and environmentally friendly which makes us happy.
  2. Fantastik Orange Action - This stuff is similar to simple green, but seems to work a bit better on wood and on grease.  Plus it smells orangey good and I like to change things up from time to time. 
  3. Bleach - I know, I know.  I am going to get some flack from people for using bleach but it really is one of the best cleaning agents out there.  We disinfect our water bottles with it, we'll put a tiny bit into our water tank to keep the water from spoiling, and it's great in a spray bottle with water to clean and disinfect the toilet and sinks. 
  4. Amazing Roll Off - It really is amazing!  This cleaner is used above deck and is great for stains on fiberglass and on the deck.  Just wet the area with water, spray it with some roll off, let it sit for a few minutes and scrub.  This product, coupled with some generic boat soap is all we use on our deck.  We love the it and have over a gallon on board.  Did we mention it's non-toxic and biodegradable?  Well it is!
  5. Lemon oil - the interior of our boat has a lot of wood in it and wood, if not cared for properly, does not age well.  Making sure to wipe all our wooden surfaces down with a little lemon oil makes our interior look brand spanking new.
  6. Ecover toilet bowl cleaner - since 95% of the time the contents of our holding tank go directly into the ocean, we try to keep toxic chemicals out of our toilet.  Boat "heads" are famous for being stinky but not ours!  Oh no!  We smell fresh and clean over here - trust me, I make sure of it!
  7. Oxy Clean Powder - when all else fails, we turn to Oxy Clean. Great for laundry but has loads of other uses as well.  When Scott hacked open a coconut on the boat and left the skins overnight on our deck, they left stains all over the place the color of tea.  I almost died and just said calmly "fix it".  After trying soft scrub, bleach, spray cleaners and more - he finally tried Oxy Clean - and it worked, like a charm.  It became a top tenner at that moment for me.
  8. Non Ultra Joy Dish Soap - This lemony goodness will actually suds up in salt water which means we actually wash our bodies (and sometimes even hair) with it when we're at anchor.  Of course we'll also do our dishes with it (in a bucket of salt water).  It smells wonderful and they practically give it away it's so cheap.
  9. Dr. Bronners Castille soap - we have been huge fans of this stuff since day one.  We love it.  Not only is it great to wash your body with (and leaves you with a cool, tingly feeling of freshness) - there are TONS more uses for it as well.  It can be a shampoo, an everyday cleaner, and even a laundry soap.  Check some other uses for this great stuff here.
  10. Vinegar - This is numero uno in my book.  Vinegar, I am convinced, is pretty much the most versatile liquid out there.  Not only is it natural and environmentally safe, it has about a hundred different uses.  Wipe down your interior wood work with a water/vinegar solution to retard mold growth, coat your veggies in it to make them last longer, pour a little in your toilet to break up any calcification, use it as a disinfectant and so much more.  It's amazing.
Those are the Top 10 Cleaning Agents aboard our boat and they certainly keep Rasmus looking good.  What have I missed that you love in your boat or home?

Baking soda. It's the number one cleaner on my list. Cheap, Eco friendly, and works like cleanser without the scratch. Also Greased Lightning. Best grease cutter on the market.

Great list! Murphy Oil Soap is on our top 10 list. It is perfect for cleaning varnished wood because it doesn't leave any residue. Makes it way easier when you need to re-coat your varnish.

Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. Gets scuffs out of fiberglass like no one's business. For every minor docking 'incident' we've had on our boat, Mr. Clean came to the rescue.

Simple Green! I feel so lame saying this, but that's pretty much my all-time favorite cleaning product. I haven't found anything that beats it, and I've definitely tried my fair share of cleaning products.
