Too expensive

Try biodegradadable clothes washing liquid. It does just the same thing for a fraction of the price i.e. 2.50 a bottle rather than £20!

Sorry, but just 'cos a detergent has got RIB written on it doesnt mean its the cutting edge of science!!

How distructive is Rib Revive. I currently have my Rib in the front garden and am looking to clean it using Rib Revive. Will it kill all the grass and will I be in trouble with the misses.

Not sure about grass but make sure you are wearing old clothes! I now have some decent clothes which are orange in places and it might come off the tubes but it doesn't come out of clothes!

We have just manufactured some new "magic sponges" capable of making light work of hull and tube cleaning without chemicals and in the case of the worst worn tubes work well with TFR. Let me know if anyone wants some samples to try and then report back on...

Daveh,

Does the word 'Melamine' mean anything to you?

Thanks
