Have not tried this but sounds good!


Quote from Andy Clarks web sit.
"By far the best RIB and boat cleaner I've found. Despite owners using expensive proprietary cleaners from the boat business, our customers can't believe the difference when using Micro-TFR for the first time. With little effort, you will restore your boat's original colour. Can be diluted with 5 parts of water, but if used neat in an atomiser and spread around quickly with a sponge, the affect is dramatic.
Normally used by the trucking industry for cleaning curtainsiders, this cleaner works well with jetwashers. Wear rubber gloves if using neat."

Try your local trade cleaning supplier (see under Janitorial Supplies in the Yellow Pages). TFR stands for "Traffic Film Remover" and is a generic term for this type of industrial cleaning product.

They will also stock other general purpose cleaning potions which will work well, and cost about a tenth of anything specifically marine related!

Tube cleaner

Daniel

I cleaned the boat as usual after an outing at West Mersea, Jet washed and then soapy water, rinced and left to dry as stated on the back of bottle, spray on a small area at a time it said and leave for 2 minutes before wiping off with damp cloth, sprayed on as directed went in caravan to get a cuppa from the guv'nor , wiped off with damp cloth and had a different shade of blue tube.
Never used it again, but had a stroke of luck when the valves kept leeking, the boat went back to Ribeye and came back with new tubes on, THANKS Mr Chivers and Mr Tilley.
PS. Thats why i have bought another.

Richard

I use Sainsbury's cream cleaner. does the job, and doens't scratch. I then finish it off with some expensive polishing stuff - looks very good when I've finished.

Greenhams in Soton near us. Or I reckon Solent truck parts nearer you. It's on the trading estate near the big Sainsbury's in Fareham near Junction 11.

Or you can grab some stuff of us which I sus[pect was originally TFR before it was repackaged.
