Cleaning everytime??

Whatís the best cleaning product that I can add to a bucket of water and use to quickly sponge the RIB off? I canít find anything on here that gives details of a product that I can use, I want almost a shampoo like thing (like turtlewax car shampoo!) but for a RIB!

Hope this makes sense to someone!

Thanks Chris

I find that If I have used the 3M tube conditioner then the best bet is just water and a cloth, the problem with using any soap based product is that it may remove the 3M meaning you end up having to reapply it all the time.

I use a normal car shampoo "wash and wax" product as an everyday washing product on my rib. Keeps it looking clean and shinny.
