If you enter 'TFR' into the search facility on this site, plenty of info will pop-up. Some of which was posted by meself.

Are the tubes just dirty or are they fading as well? Some pics would be useful to point you to the right product.

Robert, ToobShine should sort the clean, but follow up with HypaTec Finish & Protector to help restore the colour and protect your tubes, going forward.
