    Jet ski cleaning supplies

    Im just wondering what cleaning supplies you guys use to clean your skis. I just put new black tip traction mats and I read you should only use dish soap on them.

    I use car soap, dish soap strips the wax.

    OrPine boat wash it smells fantastic. I have no idea how much it costs compared to others, I get it cheap from the marina I used to work at. If the guys with 5 million dollar yachts use it, it's good enough for me. Also does not strip wax.

    I'm also contemplating getting a Zaino car detailing kit. Anyone use Zaino products out there?

    Car soap and Collinite 885 work well.

    Mother's has a marine line. I use that stuff.

    Yes, I used Zaino on my cars. Never tried it on the ski.... not sure why

    Anyway, I really do like the Zaino products, they produce the best finish I've seen. Just make sure you follow the directions on mixing the polish with the drops and get the ratios right.

    I use Megurie's automotive stuff. Works great and isn't too expensive.
