Best Steps - How to Effectively Use Venom Spot and Stain Remover

Rinse and Wash the Boat Surface

Make sure that the surface is clean and free from dust, dirt and debris before using the product on your boat (car, cycle, RV). Using the product without cleaning the dust and dirt will scratch the surface of your paint…leaving you with more work to be done. Clean the boat’s surface using a good quality boat soap before using Starke Venom.  And make sure to use microfiber cloths!

Application of Venom Spot Remover

To use the product, put a few drops of the Starke Venom water spot and stain remover on the microfiber cloth and start applying it on the surface of your boat. You may want to wear cleaning gloves, as the formulation does contain an acid safe for all substrates including gel coats. 

Work Venom Spot Remover in Sections

Start out by selecting a small area to apply the product, typically 2 feet by 3 feet, and work your way vertically then horizontally. Once you finish the process on one section, move to the next section applying Venom Spot Remover using microfiber pads and cloths. You can use straight or circular strokes to apply the product. Ensure that the strokes are uniform and cover the entire area on which you are working to achieve a uniform finish over the entire boat surface. Do not allow Starke Venom to dry to the surface of the vessel, this can cause damage to metals, plastics and glass. Always Rinse down the section you've applied Starke Venom on with water to ensure no remaining acids are on the surface.

Use Venom Spot Remover on Cool Surfaces

The Venom Water Spot Remover formula dries off quickly on a warm boat surface. The best time to apply Venom is during morning or evening times to ensure that the boat surface is cold and not warm.
