RIBase
A green scouring pad, some traffic film remover and some elbow grease.


Painting would be a last resort.

To clean your toobs buy some Fairy Power Spray and a green scouring pad.

Wash the bote first with water and the green scouring pad and they use the Fairy Power Spray and a green scouring pad while it is still wet.

Wash off with plenty of water using the green scouring pad and once you have washed off all the suds and the grey scum wait for it to dry.

Repeat on the areas you have missed if necessary

Sit back open a beer and admire your new toy
