best cleaning products

Just getting ready the season ahead and need to clean my Pvc tubes and get the algae off my hull from last year (naughty i know!)

but a quick search of google for the best products to use is making my head hurt, there is a vast array of products out there! So i thought i'd ask you guys what you would say whats the best hull cleaner and pvc tube cleaner.

any recomendations? apart from elbow grease as thats in short supply!

thanks for the reply,

i found this for the pvc tubes, but couldn't find anything to get the dried, hardened algae off, is there such a product that i can leave to soak in to the algae on the hull then simply wash off?

also i could see where to purchase the farcela stuff from.

A 5l can of TFR will be enough to keep your tubes clean all season: Truck Wash, Big Red TFR 5LTR Heavy Duty Professional Traffic Film Remover | eBay

Simply wet tubes, spray/sponge some of that on, work in with a cleaning pad/cloth/sponge etc, then rise (with LOTS of water) off.

Also works wonders on dirty gelcoat.
