Tube cleaning

Hi guys. The rib I got had been stored under a tree and has green algae on the tubes. I cleaned most of it off but there are wee green dots all over the tubes. Anyone know of anything to use on the tubes to kill the algae and take it off..? Thanks

Try fairy power spray, It comes highly recommended.
I found it good for general cleaning, But for mould and meldew use Cillitt Bang Black mould remover or Dettol mould and meldew remover.

I used all types of cleaners on Red hypalon tubes with no adverse affects, I would say after spraying keep your eye on them and don't leave to dry out. It only takes a few minutes to work.

Cillitt Bang was formally known as Napalm!
