Mildew, Mildew, Go Away
New 3M Marine Mildew Stain Remover and Marine Mildew Block Combine
to Help Solve Vexing Problem for Boat Owners

ST. PAUL, MN (February 15, 2005) -- 3M introduces 3M Marine Mildew Stain Remover, a unique formula designed to easily remove mildew stains from a variety of marine surfaces, making it a “must have” for every boat owner. Independent research confirms that mildew stains are one of the primary care and maintenance problems affecting boat owners.

“This gives boaters a great advantage in the battle against mildew,” said Eric Povitz, consumer and key accounts manager at 3M Marine. “Our mildew stain remover comes in an easy spray-and-wipe, fast-acting formula that penetrates tough-to-clean mildew stains and dirt. It’s designed to work in conjunction with 3M Marine Mildew Block. Together, this gives boaters the first, system approach for cleaning and preventing mildew on marine surfaces.”

3M Marine Mildew Stain Remover was specifically designed for harsh marine environments and helps keep surfaces looking cleaner and newer longer, while reducing the amount of scrubbing needed to remove mildew. 3M Marine Mildew Stain Remover and 3M Marine Mildew Block also take out the guess-work, by breaking the process down into three easy steps. First, spray the stain, allowing the remover to penetrate the affected area. Then, wipe clean. Follow up with 3M Marine Mildew Block for long lasting protection. 3M Marine Mildew Stain Remover is ideal for above the waterline applications and works on a variety of surfaces, such as vinyl seat cushions, deck furniture, rub rails and showers. It’s even thick enough to be used on vertical surfaces such as seat backs and ceramic walls. It is recommended that users test for suitability as the formulation does contain bleach and will discolor some surfaces.

“Boaters want products that help them care for their boats, that provide fast results, are easy to use and make boat maintenance less of a chore,” added Povitz. “Now, they can spend less time cleaning and more time boating.”

3M Marine Mildew Stain Remover and 3M Marine Mildew Block are available in 16.9 fl. oz. easy-to-dispense bottles and can be purchased at most marine retail locations.
