Raft Cleaner?

Hey there buzzards. Can I use dish soap to clean my pvc raft? If not, what should I use?

I take mine to the car wash and use the provided brush and whatever soap they have there.

However, I usually opt out of the hot wax.

Slop the soapy water all over the boat and look for pinholes as you scrub it clean with a rag or soft brush. It works great. Follow with 303 to protect.

I do the same thing, when I am lazy I take my trailer with the boat to the car wash and then slop 303 on it. 303 Cleans it, Gets rub marks off, UV protects it and Shines it!
