On my thundercat I used good old soapy water, then finished it off with cream cleaner, more water & then armour-all wipes to it shine!

Cream cleaner and a washing up scouring sponge works perfect

RIBase
I just use the normal rib cleaner stuff (cant remember what its called). I've used thinners before as well, when I got the boat it was filthy. Just remember to put tube polish stuff on it once cleaned, helps stop the sun fading it and keeps it cleaner for a lot longer.
