Best way to clean Hypalon tubes

I have finally finished my Pacific 22 rebuild and it just needs a good clean on the tubes, that are grubby and have oily hand marke etc on them. Any suggestions for the best stuff to use? I see Fairy Power cleaner has been suggested, any other thoughts? Here is a pic of it.

I've just done mine - Fairy Power spray and non-stick scourer.
Then restored with Ribshop Hypatech stuff - great result.

Thanks for the tips. I also spoke to Henshaws who made the tubes and they reckon that Acetone is ok to use to get greasy marks off. I am surprised, Acetone can be quite destructive on a lot of materials. Has anyone used Acetone on Hypalon?

I'd welcome a better view of your mooring post? I have to make a new one.

I use acetone and if the experts use it then you have your answer. As also suggested, Fairy power spray works very well with scourer.

It is all made in Stainless. When I replaced the decks, I added extra re enforcing in the bow area and it is bolted through 1 1/2" marine ply and also a mahogany frame work that ties in with the main hull structure. I have added a tie bar front and back. I will use the front bar for mooring lines and anchor. It was a bit much when polished up in the bow and looked a bit tarty, so have painted the lower section to help it blend in.

Acetone works fine,only not in the Sun as it evaporates too fast.
Then use a Conditioner like 3M-Hypalon Conditioner UV Protector.

Thanks for the useful advice. I will be out with the acetone later on this evening (once it has cooled down) and the Fairy power spray.
