Everyone enjoys a good hack; useful little tips that make life just a bit less frustrating. We have a couple of spa hacks that you can use to make cleaning up a little easier.

Sticky stuff

Do you have trouble with sap, pitch or another sticky substance staining your vinyl spa cover? We have a simple fix, Peanut Butter. Yes, peanut butter. Simply rub peanut butter on that sticky stain and let the oils in the peanut butter lift that sticky stain away. If the stain is really stubborn, you can let the peanut butter sit in the sun for a few minutes so the oils really penetrate the stain. For this hack you want to be sure to use the peanut butter sparingly. There is no need to glob on the peanut butter, this is a situation where  a little bit goes a long way.

Big filters

Cleaning your ATV filter can be a pain. Finding something large enough to clean it in is frustrating, but we have a simple fix for this too. Head to your local hardware store and pick up some large garbage bags with a 1-2 mil thickness, the kind contractors use that are really heavy duty. All you need to do is add your filter cleaner and water in a ratio of 1 part filter cleaner to 10 parts water. Put your filter into the solution, then squeeze the air out of the bag and zip tie it closed. Let your filter sit in the garbage bag over night. The next morning you can use filter floss to take care of any particles that are left over. This simple hack makes cleaning your ATV filter a breeze!

The next time you find yourself frustrated with your spa maintenance remember these little hacks so you can spend your time in the spa rather than just cleaning it. Stop by the store, I’m sure we have a few more hacks up our sleeves that you’ll find helpful.
