INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
First wet out the cloth with fresh water. The shampoo is ready mixed. Spray the shampoo directly on to the cloth and rub in with a soft brush. Ideally use the Ultramar soft brush. Gently work the shampoo into both sides of the cloth and leave to work for 10 minutes whilst avoiding it drying out. Then rinse with plenty of fresh water. In cases of heavy and persistent contamination repeat the above. Allow kite to dry completely and then reproof with Ultramar Kite-Refit Coating.
ABOUT ULTRAMAR PROFESSIONAL TEXTILE CARE PRODUCTS
Since 1988 Ultramar have been established as one of Europe’s leading professional sail and tent cleaners.
Combining their own in-house experience of cleaning performance textiles with the expertise of specialist partners, Ultramar have developed a complete range of professional textile care and maintenance products for sails, boat covers, awnings, tents, kites and other outdoor fabrics. Years of hands-on experience has helped develop and establish a range of products that do exactly what they are meant to do; namely to clean and protect.

Protect before it is too late! - Often we only think of cleaning and protecting textiles after they have started to leak, have turned green with algae or have become contaminated with mildew. Taking preventive measures from the beginning, combined with an ongoing care and maintenance program, will help maximise the performance and lifespan of your sails, boat covers, awnings, tents, kites and other outdoor fabrics.
We would always recommend you consult with your manufacturer to establish an appropriate care program for your specific product.
