I have not used any of the tube protectors, but I believe they leave a film on the tubes to stop dirt adhering and thereby making subsequent cleaning easier.

I have been told by a RIB manufacturer that Mr Sheen furniture polish has the same effect. Might make the tubes a bit slippery though... So don't sit the wife on them while underway!

I used polymarine hypalon cleaner plus protector. I guess it's the same as rib revive. Basically wet the tubes, spray on and give it a rub. Removed all traces of grime - approx 30 mins to do the whole boat and the excess that dribbled down the tubes onto the hull also made a really good job of cleaning the gellcoat! It really does work unlike the stuff that I got as a freebie when I got the boat (can't recall what make it is but it wasn't in a spray bottle)

Wash of then apply the protector which is meant to stop the effects of UV on the tubes.
