Moisten a towel piece dampened with dish soap paste, rub circular. Mold, stains will be cleared if not severely trapped on tube fabric. If so will need to use nail acetone or acylic paint thinner.

Both evaporates fast and cleans well, will not harm tube fabric. Wipe tubes with mild detergent inmediately after when applying the latter.

Happy Boating

Washing powder, scrubbing brush, warm water, elbow grease - shifts most stuff.

RIBase
Wizz Oxi Fabric Stain Remover from Poundland (it's fun to ask the staff how much stuff costs...).
I parked my SR too close to an old rusty oil drum over winter and it stained the Hypalon and rubbing strake on one side where it touched. Tried soap, water, elbow grease, traffic film remover, allsorts of stuff but nothing would remove the mark.
Picked up the stain remover last week and within minutes the rust stain had gone.
I think it's active ingredient is sodium percarbonate.

Silky caravan and boat cleaner works a treat.
Large tub and only a couple of quid per tub.
Leaves a waterproof barrier when you buff it off too.

...newbie question from someone with a mould stained Sib...

Does acetone and MEK leave the surface of the PVC tacky or something???

Just read a bunch of posts about using it to prepare the surface ready for patching...

Yes acetone does at least on pvc, nail varnish remover is not 100% acetone any more though so I was told.Try your boat shop for that.
