Black spots on tubes

Hi Forum

Spent last Saturday giving Red Dog her annual clean up using Fairy Power Spray. It always does a good job but I have noticed that over the last few year the number of black mold spots are increasing, tried every mold removing product out there but nothing touches them.

I saw a posting on Facebook this week about a product called Shmuffex, so I bought a bottle from Rib Shop, WOW, every spot on the tubes are gone, easy to use and fantastic results. The only problem I had was that the areas with the mold spots that I cleaned came up far cleaner than the rest of the boat so I had to clean the whole thing.

Next year I will just clean the whole boat with this and not start with FPS.

Top tip, if you are going to google the product make sure you do not make a spelling mistake, I dread to think what might come up!!!!

Have to agree. Took two applications on my tubes and had to leave it on for 45 minutes, but made some very badly marked tubes respectable again.
