We get this question often, what’s the difference between your basic boat wash and boat wash & wax. Of course both will clean your boat. It really depends on what type of soap you use. It’s crucial to look at the ingredients that are in your soap. Some soaps have chemicals that remove your wax. Not all at once, but over time. When we do our washes we always use a wash and wax product. Not only does it clean your boat but it also puts a protectant sealant on your boat.
